sighting: I was on a sky watch outlooking 
the ocean.  It was an orange colored ball, 
small, but bigger than a star point, and a 
planet.  (This I know due to my knowledge of 
astronomy)  Moved across the horizon from 
right to left. (approx time of this movement 
was + 5 seconds, as it did this it blinked 
on, off, on, off.  Unlike a plain however,
it did this wholly so, the entire craft 
blinked on and off, rather than the three 
light configuration of common planes.
It blinked off, and I thought I had lost 
it, when it then did two eratic turns, it 
looked like a fiery red orange blur.  It 
was like "zap, zap, zap," I mean it was fast.
Then again, but much further away now it moved 
across the horizon, right to left.  Again it 
blinked on, off,on, off.  I then lost it.
I have examined the possibilities of 
1.) plane  
2.) helicopters 
3.) and finally satelites.

1.) I have determined it is not a plane.  
Planes are common in this area I must admit, 
however, the light phenomenon and speed of 
the "zip turn" make me believe this is not 
logical.
2.) A helicopter, if holding a singular 
orange light may be a possible explanation, 
as it could theoretically perform both the 
across and zig-zag flight patterns witnessed by
my person.  However, I must note: the zig zag 
flight was extremley speedy for even a 
helicopter, and again the light was much 
blurred as it sped through this movement.
3.) Finally I looked into a satellite as a 
possibility. It is possible that the craft 
could have been a satellite changing 
trajectory, but I think the amount of movement
that was produced by this craft is irregular.
