I was out on the back porch looking S.S West. I thought it was a helicopter, but way too many running lights. It appeared to be about 500 or less feet. totally clear sky. By the running lights it looked to be bigger than a helicopter. Red, white and as I looked closer, it had a ring of fainter strobing white lites in a kind of rythmic fashion. From my perspective, it seemed angular and moved slow, but with no sound. It moved counterclock wise sweeping fashion and I lost site of it over the house. Prior military, what the hell?
