What at first looked like a star, at 20 - 30 degrees off the horizon, was zig zagging and jumping up and down but didn't seem to be coming closer. Occasionally, there also seemed to be a reddish or orange glow surrounding it. After a few minutes, it took off to the north and out towards the sea and disappeared. This same pattern repeated itself 10 minutes later.
