Strange light in sky moving erratically, stopping abruptly and changing directions.

I was attending a birthday party for my granddaughter in Lehi, UT on July 17, 2010. At approximately 22:00 hrs, people were gathering in the front yard, preparing to leave. Someone said, “Hey, look at that! What is it?” Everyone (more than 15 people—adults and children) looked toward the eastern sky to see what it was. We observed what appeared to be a white light that was moving very strangely. It would go to the right, then the left, circle and up and down. It was able to stop abruptly before it changed directions. I’m not sure exactly how far away it was, as there was nothing to accurately gauge it by. It also appeared to have lights that changed from white to blue to red or purple. Finally, after about 10 minutes it just seemed to disappear. I got up the next morning and looked at the local news online to see if anyone had reported seeing this same thing. No luck there. However, I searched You Tube to see if by chance anything was there, and! to my surprise there was! Someone who lives in Spanish Fork, UT, which is about 15-20 miles south of Lehi, UT, had witnessed what appeared to be the same object that we all had witnessed only it had been seen above Spanish Fork about 15 minutes or so earlier. They did capture this on video; however it’s a little shaky but looks to be the same object. . In the video it also looked to be about the same distance away as when we observed it. If interested, you can find that video on You Tube titled, “Friendly Neighborhood UFO.”
