Fireball/yellow/orange "dancing figure" hovering, ascending, descending, (slightly); NEAR WPAFB.

I have not posted this until 04/27/15. The reason being, I like to investigate with nothing less than pure skepticism of my own eyes/thoughts, and try to as thorough as possible before I make a claim as something being unexplainable or being a "UFO".

2:30am, I see this yellow/orange, orb/ball of light floating fairly low on the night sky. I was thinking Jupiter, which I know was visible this night (Venus as well). I did all the research I could, pictures, astronomical star/planet arrangements for given time and date. The research kept leading me to convince myself that it was indeed Jupiter. My gut was saying otherwise. This object was relatively large compared to any star or planet ive ever observed with the naked eye. Within the first few moments of observation I had to keep refocusing on this object. It appeared at times humanoid in figure (arms, torso, head), "divine" dancing light if you would. Other times not so much, I rode it off as deceived perception. Then I kept seeing a flash of light over the right shoulder of the object and this too, rode off as a plane heading to the airport. Then I saw the flash again, and again, and again. That's when it really didn't feel natural. Even if the flash of light was a satellite in fixed position, why was it fixed, was it keeping an eye on this thing? At the least it was only a satellite interested in this object as well, if not it was from the object itself, either way I don't know.

I know that it aroused me enough to call up a friend near by to check it out as well. Unfortunately I don't have a camera phone/camera but I did sketch it on the computer with paint.
