Beams of light shooting in random directions coming from an unknown small orb

Strange flashing beams of light in clear night sky coming from small glowing orb (slightly larger than most stars) Light beams went in random directions, in no particular pattern. Object that they came from moved in fast zig-zags, then the lights stopped, & the object moved extremely fast upwards, stopped, & then vanished.

No sound from the object was heard.

This occurred over my 5.3 acre forested property. The object was overtop of the forest, far from the road.

(Previous report from West Kelowna, BC, describes a very similar occurrence. Both locations are fairly close to each other).

Note: There is an aircraft training route that passes over my house, but they have never tested aircraft at night.
