Object at Low Altitude Zigzagging

My girlfriend was looking out the window because she thought she heard it started raining then seen a light. She went into the other window near the bathroom I was in and then seen the light zigzagging near a light pole near our place. She yelled for me to come look but I was peeing but stopped myself to go look as quick as I could. I was about 2 steps away from the window before she said it vanished. She thought it was possibly police or someone with a flashlight but we went outside immediately after her sighting and there was nobody outside. I tried to recreate it with a few different flashlights but the light wasnít solid and you could only see the beam. Iím not skeptical but if I donít see something firsthand then I suggest more scientific explanations first so I also suggested it being a drone but a drone wouldnít just vanish and itís not like she seen it in the sky.. it was approximately 200 feet off the ground. My second thought was ball lighting but ! it wasnít lighting or even raining and she said the shape was like a oval.. she also said it was similar size to a circular sled.
