We were watching the fireworks, when we noticed this thing in the sky flashing green & red lights.

At first I thought it was just a helicopter. Then people around us started to take notice of it, because the movements of it were so strange.

At one point, it hovered downward real slow, then shot back up really fast, then shot forward, and then backwards.

We couldn't take our eyes off it. It actually was there for about 20 mins, until it just disappeared in the blink of an eye.

I am 100% certain that this was not a helicopter or any type of man-made aircraft.

I've never experienced something like this in my life.
