I have photos and video of a two hour long encounter - one pic with at least 100 unknown objects that are flying

I am a photographer. I wanted to take pictures of the beautiful Michigan night stars. I went onto a dirt road in front of a cabin I had rented. I took some pictures and then for some reason I felt compelled to take a photo of the sky that included a bunch of trees. It was an overwhelming feeling. I took the picture and did not notice anything out of the ordinary about the pic but did see that after I took the pic an object moved from the trees into the open sky. I saw the object move approximately 100 yards behind another group of trees. I moved my camera and tripod across the street and aimed at the object. It was moving in and out, or behind a group of trees but it was clearly moving. It appeared to be a horizontal cylinder that was showing red, blue and white colors. it went from rapid to slow and sometimes looked like it was making a "Z" pattern. I then saw it shoot a white light to where it had been previously, the first place I saw it. It seemed as if it were scanning the area for something. As it was scanning the first area the red/blue/white light continued to pulsate and the object continued to float behind/in the trees. The light then came my direction. I should mention that during this time I was capturing video and still images with my Nikon D90 digital camera. I took out my Samsung Galaxy S III and started to shoot video with this as well. The white light can be seen in the video. It was almost hypnotic and when you see the video it is as if it is pulsating or a modulated oscillation. When the light is directly on me it is clear in the video as it is difficult to see any details. The light them moves away. In the video you can see two or three objects that move about that have blinking lights. One seems to be shining a light directly below it to either pull up the object below or help guide it. The object on the far right - and this is purely speculation though I have watched this clip for 3 hours in a l! oop - *possibly* has a figure or several enter and then ascend! . One th is is clear - the ascension is absolute.

Some of the videos (The Samsung phone) I did not think had anything at all but I did not delete them. Two of the videos have odd noises. The odder of the two show a very bright light that is neon yellow and long and something indescribable (like a very bright book or corner of a picture frame). It is only visible for a fraction of a second but it makes a branch snapping sound first, then the flash of the object passing incredibly fast, then an electronic blip type noise. Almost like in the old days when an MP3 didn't have a proper codec and had a glitch type sound. I expect that I will transfer the sound into soundforge to try to slow down to see what I can make of it, if anything.

The most absolutely astonishing thing - and one that is absolutely beyond question, even from my most skeptical friends - is that the first picture that I took (the one I felt compelled to take) - when lightened and exposure corrected - shows easily 100+ objects above, in back and in front of the tree line. There are at least 5 different types of object. One that seems to be about 100 yards wide that has a row of red and blue lights on its edge. There is one more that looks like this to the far right, in front of the trees, below the tree line. It was this object that I saw fly to the right and watched the most. The other objects look to be miniature flying objects that have two "head lights" that are either both blue or both red. These are small, maybe the size of a car or smaller. There are other that are teapot shaped. Most have lights apparent. There is one more that is either attached or directly under the "mother ship" that I call the topmost one th! at has the ring of lights.

I would be happy to send the one I am describing directly above this sentence if you would like to have a look. The videos are very large but I can store on DropBox or a place of your choosing.
