Flying object that was hovering (though wabbling) maybe 10k feet high. I was getting ready for bed and took my dog into the backyard so she could do her business. While standing in the yard enjoying the beautiful night I looked up into the sky. After a few seconds an object caught my attention. At first I thought it was a star but it was moving erratically in a smallish area. I then thought it was a drone but realized it was too high.
I then got out my phone and started filming. I took two series of videos each about four minutes long. The first video looks at the object from more of a wide angle. The second zooms in very close to the object and it actually took my breath away when I saw it's shape and the light that was coming from it.
I live in the third most populous county in the entire country and our air space is insanely busy. There is a very active air force base here, a very busy air port four miles away, and they build bell helicopters, and Apache helicopters just a few miles from my house. Additionally, there is a hospital within a couple miles of my house with a super busy medivac helicopter and lastly the national guard is periodically flying their black hawks into the desert for practice. Lastly, there is a gunner range for the "Wart Hogs" about 100 miles away.
I love planes and wish I would have been a helicopter pilot. Hence I am always looking in the sky to see what is flying overhead and whatever this was it's not like anything I've ever seen before.
I would love to know if someone has a logical explanation for what I saw.
