My cousin and I have been going up on the roof of my three-story building every clear night for the past week or two, and last night, we finally saw some activity.

First, right when we got up on the roof, to the right from us in the sky I saw a small, bright orange light that was moving across the sky. Then, it got dimmer quickly and then COMPLETELY disappeared.

About a half hour afterwards, my cousin and I were watching what I thought was a star. It is there every night in about the same place, and blinks red, blue, and other colors almost like a strobe light. Last night, though, we were watching it very closely and in less than an hours time, the "star" had moved very slowly to the right, so much so that it could not have been a star. Then, the star was moving up and down slightly, and left to right very slightly.

Soon after it was moving that way, another small, bright orange light appeared up and to the right of it, OUT OF NOWHERE went down and to! the right and back up fairly quickly, and completely disappeared.

Afterwards, the bright "star" moved even more to the right and up, and right before we went inside, another small bright orange light appeared and flew right over us and the roof.
