Duration:10 minutes
Hovering flickering lights.

I went to close the back-door of the house and felt a random need to look outside as I closed the door as I've seen objects in the sky in the past at night, and sure enough, I see the lights I've seen countless times. These very bright lights consist of a constant white dot with flickering red and green lights occurring very close to the white light. The flickering is similar to seeing a single star that flickers at night. All the lights are so bright as though you're staring into an LED bulb from afar. These lights hover in one place and will slowly move up and down and side to side making figure "8" motions, sometimes moving horizontal and or vertical, and sometimes they will simply disappear as though someone turned off the switch. I have been observing these lights since 2013 and they're consistent with their behavior. I have nicknamed this phenomenon as the "alien planet or Alien Star." I have seen this happen countless times to the eastern horizon from Long Beach and Bolsa Chika State Beach, both in California. The movement of the lights are so slow and smooth they cannot be a helicopter, and the lights are so bright and unique they're not a common known drone.
