Location: Philadelphia, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Erratic lights hovering over Philly suburbs.

At around 2200 10/27/2015, as my wife and I arrive home in our apartment complex, we were discussing our issues, when I see a light moving across the sky and dismissed it as an airplane. It had green, red, and yellowish/white lights running across it. Couldn't tell the shape because it was behind some trees in the distance.

What caught both my wife and I's attention was that the lights returned to a position in the sky where we could see it behind the tree in a swaying manner. Not typical for an aircraft, and after spending 10 years in the Air Force (Edwards AFB & Pentagon), I knew that was not normal not even for a helicopter to maneuver in such an erratic manner.

We lost sight of the object after it dipped down below the treeline in the distance.
