While outside for a smoke I noticed an unusually large and very bright light moving very slowly towards town. The thing that interested me was it's size and speed. Once it got closer to town its light turned off completely but you could still vaguely see its outline. While that was moving without lights, an even larger but much quicker light appeared to my left some distance away from the original light object. It traveled away from me until coming to a point and stopping, which it stayed there the remander of the night. After awhile, I saw #1s light come on again, and at this point it stopped. Then moved diagonally to the left, then straight up, and then continued into the town, it was at this point I saw 3 more lights come from the same direction and do the same. It was a minute or so inbetween.

A short while later, I saw abother large light coming in the direction the others had just went. It turned from a giant yellowish white mass to a very small blue moving dot in an instant and with the change traveled much much faster. When it was out by the fields it became large. And seemingly mimicked a star. At this point I decided I should walk towards it to get a better look. It didn't seem to be going anywhere, and I had noticed other large moving objects around the fields suddenly stop and look like stars. It was kind of unsettling.

After awhile of walking towards the object, I saw that it was above an overgrown field I could not walk into. Besides this was another field that was mainly dirt and dying remainders of plants. I saw a smaller object come from the direction of the light and head towards another of the once moving lights that was above the dirt field. It was extremely low to the ground. So much so that even with it being night time I could easily make out an outline which was reminded me of a flat skipping stone. While the smaller object headed for the second light, I noticed the first light "danced" every so often. It made motions up, down, side to side, diagonal, and loops and circular motions. It really didn't seem to have any reasoning behind the movement.

I started to leave feeling uncomfortable and as I walked back I noticed in a 3rd field another dancing light that was growing very large, then dimming to my front and left, then to my front right I saw a massive moving light that I believe to be a meteorite. It was very bright blue and was only in sight for a second before disappating. On my way home (less then 2 blocks) I also saw two shooting stars. The reason I bring this up is because my feeling at the time was the lights had an interest in this stuff. Anyway I ended up sitting outside watching these lights dance about and periodically set themselves in different spots in the sky till almost 3am. They would move sometimes just bluntly to a new spot then all the sudden stop and stay in the new spot awhile or would make the dancing motion and stop in a different spot. When the second way happened it was always shorter distance change but still very obvious. For most the night I took note of four main large lights but du! ring that time I spent my energy mostly observing the closest one, which was very active. It moved in the same line, up down, u shape movements as before. It also would dim greatly and then get very large. It changed color from blue, red, white, and yellow. Moving lights would come seemingly from nowhere underneath or around the big object usually all at once then with a cool off period. I saw both a beam and smaller floating objects come from the 4 large lights. The beam came from a light behind my house that had been moving to the fields. The beam went straight ahead of the object and then another to its side.

During this time I also saw three more shooting stars, one looked like it almost hit the object in the sky, and it promptly moved out of the way. I saw another meteor as well which was also abnormally large and also was out of sight in a flash. It had a green tail instead of blue. There were several lights of red that flashed a lot that seemingly paroled the area the entire span of these hours as well. They would make circles around moving slowly and one in particular on three separate occasions got so close to the big light object I thought they would hit each other. Each time the ball of light would move. This red light object looked like a normal plane.

I made an observation. And an experiment took place, at which I could get a reaction from the light, and it's behavior changed completely. I would like for now what took place with that to be kept to myself. But I think it's important to say I did experience the object react to certain things someone did on the ground.

I am 28 years old. I don't have a degree, I'm a cook at a restaurant. I have no photographic or video evidence to back this up. But I also have no history of mental illness. I also have nothing but redicule to gain as well as lost time writing this. So, I assume this won't help anyone figure out anytime soon what these objects were, aliens, atmospheric stuff, easily explained things etc. But that's my account of what I saw around my house.
