Stationary light over ridge top, more appear then move away

Decided to look at the stars tonight, out on my buddy’s roof. We climbed up just looking at the stars for a while, our eyes adjusted. At about 12:15 I looked out to the Northwest, and noticed a single bright light, and signaled my buddy to look at it…I had seen the same thing several months before. A single bright, slightly off white, somewhat yellowed circular light hanging stationary above the ridge. We pretty much stared at it for a good 10-20 minutes, and it faded to a point, then blinked out.

Ten minutes later, we noticed it had come back in the same exact position – it remained there, slightly brighter, before blinking completely out instantly, not fading, just completely going dark, several seconds later it faded back, then flashed out completely. Another few minutes passed without any event, then one light came into existence, slightly smaller than the original, but just to the left of the position of the original light, shortly after, a light of the original intensity came back, in the same exact position it had been the entire time.

Then they both flickered out, then back once – they’d moved in a Northwardly direction- right of their original positions. They blinked out again, and reappeared slightly more to the right. The third time they reappeared, they didn’t blink off again, sliding slowly to the right, and down toward the ridge, behind a cell tower, before disappearing completely.

For reference: We’re both freshman at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. I, a Geology major, and he, in civil engineering. We were completely sober during this even.
