Lighted craft hovers over Shasta Bally Mountain electronics

At 11:47 PM July 4, 2013, Redding, CA - I was sitting outside facing the west where I have a clear view of Shasta Bally (approx. 11 miles due west as the crow flies)- a mountain between Redding and the west coast. It has quite a bit of electronics on the summit - TV and radio transmitting towers, microwave repeaters, etc.

I noticed a ‘star’ start to drop straight out of the sky straight down on top of Shasta Bally.
As it came closer to Shasta Bally is got bigger and brighter then is stopped and hovered over the mountain - it was about the size of a silver dollar sitting over the mountain and it was an extremely bright white light illuminating the mountain.

It hovered there approx. 30 seconds and then moved to the right then back where it had been and then back (to the west) dropping down behind the mountain (which really illuminated the mountain even more) before it shot up and out of sight leaving a tracer line as it disappeared into the sky.

This is not the first sighting there have been at least 6 in the past 5 months with 2 ( 2-3 weeks ago) in one night. One was a bright white light and the other was a bright red light. I saw them within 10 minutes of each other. Before the sighting on July 4th they only hovered for a few seconds before darting off leaving a tracer line and disappearing into the sky. Their hovering size was not as large and bright as the one on the 4th.

I saw another on Friday night 7/5/13 which acted like the others - didn’t stay very long before leaving.

I go outside to smoke several times at night so what are the odds - I’ve seen so many?

The number of visitations per night must be astronomical.
