Blue idle star moves erractically and is red while in motion.

I was sitting at a baseball field in the bleachers with my boyfriend, just chit chatting and enjoying the night. The sky was so clear that night. We were looking up at the stars. I then looked straight ahead and saw what I thought was a bright blue star. It was completely still and shining a bit brighter than the other stars and it was definitely a blue-ish color.

I then pointed it out to my BF. As soon as I pointed at it (and we were both looking right at it at this point) it moved quickly to the right and changed colors - to a reddish blinking light. It then jerked up, then left, then down, then right. The turns were very sharp - almost like it stopped in the air and turned right back around to go the other way.

The way it moved and the speed it moved, my BF and I agreed it could not of been anything man-made (that we know of, of course). We saw it moving for about a minute then it disappeared behind some trees.

A few minutes later we saw two triangular pla! nes (one after the other) flying parallel to us the turn left toward where the object was. Those planes looked as if they could of been military fighter jets. They weren't moving too fast and the turn looked normal to what I've seen as far as planes go. It definitely could of been coincidental as they turned towards where Logan Airport would be (we see planes fly over all the time in Cambridge).

I know what I saw was something different and no one will convince me otherwise. It was not a plane, helicopter, drone, laser light, or anything like that. This thing was completely idle like a star, started out blue, and changed to red lights and moved erratically right after I pointed it out to my BF.

The reason I felt the need to share this story is basically to see if anyone else in my area saw something like that on that night. I know I'm not crazy because my boyfriend saw it too.

Very cool but sort of freaked me out.
