clear night, but not body, rotating lights, not fixed and not a plane or any know air craft.

Went out to smoke a cigerette, only one on road.(prior mil.) I know alltypes of air craft and lighting they create. This had no standard lighting, could not see the body of craft,but the lighting rotated in a oval pattern around the body in vertical cross body pattern. It was flying low about five hundred ft. Going from north to south by south east flight line, extremely fast, faster than any jet I ever seen and I seen soem of the fastest jets around. Mgs 29's are not that fast. 3 white and 2 red lights rotating and flashing, not fixed like normal jets or choppers. Seen one similar in sisters oregon six years prior. That one flew low about 200 knts. then stopped and went straight up about 3000knts and was gone(total event time 10 sec)
