Stepped outside for a cigarette with the misses and looked up before blinding myself with the flash of my lighter. what i saw instantly stuck out as something very odd. we live under a busy flight path for both commercial and military aircraft. as i am constantly observing various craft and navigation lighting layouts i knew this was not the usual airplane, helicopter, or drone. it was about 130am, well past the typical flight times, when i looked up to see a dark non reflective craft with 2 solid red lights moving faster than a balloon, but slower than a plane or helicopter. the craft bobbed up and down, left and right, in no particular pattern as it moved at a somewhat slow but steady pace. the best o can describe this movement is a flying bird flapping it's wings. the craft seemed to have trouble holding a steady flight vector and almost stumbled it's way across the sky about 500ft above our heads. as the craft passed over, i noticed no sound at all and the 2 lights never blinked and we're steady for the duration of my observation. also as the craft passed, the light furthest from us disappeared momentarily behind the body of the object but i was still unable to make out it's shape as it was dark in color and was not reflective. it was low enough but the only size reference was the distance between the 2 red lights, which i'd say was about 20 feet. both of us were left confused but did not want to jump to conclusions. whatever it was i have never observed anything like it before.
