Characteristics: There were lights on the object
UFO spotted among group in Texas

A group of friends and I were hanging out in a friend's backyard, when I noticed a light that seemed to be moving. The first few minutes, it seemed to be farther away, so seemed to be moving the way a plane would. As it seemed to get closer and closer, it started getting brighter, and seemed to be pulsing. As it got closer, I noticed that this object seemed to be hovering, as it was moving from side to side, in circles, etc. There was no kind of noise at all, so I am sure that it was not any plane or helicopter that I know of. One other friend spotted this as well, and we alerted the whole group. We were all schocked and stared in amazement until the object suddenly shot in one direction and died of the pulsing light.
