More Dissolving "Stars"

We posted a report on this site last week regarding "dissolving stars" at our location in Lancaster, CA. We now want to report 3 sightings within an hour while we "dog sat" for my sister in the hills of Palmdale last night.

My sister lives up in the hills of West Palmdale. We went over to the house around 9pm. We checked on the dogs, and went out by the pool to relax and watch the stars. The house is situated on the hill in such a way that provides a panoramic view of the sky and the entire Antelope Valley. As is our usual custom, we were viewing the sky.

The first "star" came from the southwest corridor, and even while planes were flying around, this "star" almost "hovered" as it flew in a slow, steady, northeastern direction. Like our previous sightings in Lancaster, this object dipped occasionally and then eventually "dissolved". We both confirmed what we saw: no sound, no flash pattern or lights with the exception of the objects "brightness/ sphere shape". We waited a while longer, perhaps 8 to 10 minutes, and the 2nd "star" appeared out of south heading in a northerly direction. This 2nd star was different, however. This time, while it made a slow, almost "hover" like pattern, with slight dips, etc. it made it's way into our northern view, stopped, hovered, then suddenly became extremely BRIGHT, as if someone turned on a spotlight, while it remained motionless, felt like a signal to us that we see you seeing us. Then it dimmed again, and dissolved into the same spot as the 1st "star". We waited awhile longer again, this time it was approximately 15 minutes, and eventually, another "star" came out of the direct west direction, made a slow, dipping, hover like pattern, and again, moved across the sky and "dissolved" into the same exact area of the sky (due north) As previously stated in our post of last week, we are very close to Edwards AFB, and see many flights of different aircraft all the time and are familiar with private and military craft. These objects are not airplanes. No sound, no flash patterns, no direct flight path, no usual flight path taken (as we are used to seeing here in the Antelope Valley) We are reporting this again in the hope that some other people in the valley have seen the same objects in the sky. Thank You
