Sighting Details

around 9:30 ish I saw what looked like a Chinese paper balloon but a large one, it was slowly moving south east . it looked very strange and different then anything normal so I yelled to my wife who looked out the window and saw it and ran back to get my binoculars . as she was gone it was about to go over the mountain beside our home But !!!!! it was not that high up even though it looked high and far it was closer and lower then I first thought because it was over the trees but on my side of the mountain and it was about half way up the mountain as my wife came back it was starting to vanish in the tree line then vanished behind the trees . my wife came out and was a bit freaked out and we talked about it and figured it must have been a large Chinese balloon ( not sure what they are called )and it ran out of heat and crashed into the trees,at which my wife reentered the house and I went to finish mowing the grass by our pool all of the sudden my wife comes running out and is waving her arms trying to get my attention ! well it ascended again from behind the trees and continued SE again we watched it for a very short time then it blinked out, it just vanished . a few seconds later it reappeared but much further SE then it was before, it now seemed to be moving to the left and right slowly all of the sudden moving NW back towards our home and once again blinked out, reappeared once again closer towards our home but a bit N this time and as we watched it, it seemed to vanish but with a sort of streak as if it moved away at such high speed it left a trail of lite behind it, again heading SE we got a bit of video of it ,that my wife took !! I can say it was no more then 120 yards away at the closest point and it was weird because it looked further away then it was colors changing slightly on it but I could not make out the structure behind the lights .all that I could say was that it looked square or rectangular with a redish glow it was silent and fluid in its movement, and it lowered itself behind trees and was there for a few minutes , its unknown to me whether it touched ground or not. the video is on an I phone and will have to be sent to an email
