Unusual light spiraling above Boney Mountain

While sitting on our couch and looking out through our large window, I saw a single light - much like a typical airplane- enter my field of vision crossing the sky in a straight line from the West to the East. Nothing unusual at first.

The light then stopped, did a quick spiral downward, changed altitude and lifted back upward. It next appeared to make a circular pattern parallel to the ground, but then suddenly changed and made another circle, this time perpendicular to the ground.

Finally it began to drift back the way it had come, heading from East to West, as it returned in that direction it dropped down in another spiral motion, at the bottom of the spiral it froze momentarily before raising up quickly and continuing westward.

At this point I left the room to get my wife, but when we returned the object was gone. The entire incident lasted between 2 and 3 minutes at approximately 22:05 on April 20th in the airspace above Boney Mountain in Newbury Park, ! California.
