Description: Was in a dog park with a friend and saw a bright light just south-east of the lower-east star of Orion that I had originally mistook for Venus, the morning star. After further observation we thought it was the police helicopter, but the red and green lights emanating from the object were irregular, and the movements to erratic and fast. We flashed the truck lights at it and observed the object mimicking us in response.
After filming it with my friends phone as it danced in the sky for 3 hours we went the Ellerslie area to see if it was near the airport and observed it further. After a call from my wife we went to pick her up, and returned to the Ellerslie area to spot more, closer, objects towards the Nisku/Leduc/International Airport Area. There were two flying low altitude near farm house, seemingly beaming a bright light to the ground, illuminating the whole object then rising several meters before moving again (also caught on camera). Two more objects flew low-altitude sorties in a wide circular pattern from the airport to the Beaumont area. One more could be seen towards east-side Edmonton, in the same configuration.
Amazingly, there were no passenger or cargo jets landing or taking off during this time period, though you could see the planes in the distance waiting to land. After 6:30 you could see the planes start to take-off again, and the objects seemingly dissolved into the night. The original light we had spotted was still visible, staying a relative distance from the aforementioned star, until the sun had peaked over the horizon, at which point I assume it was too bright to see the object.
Amazingly without close observation of the object it would have been mistaken for a star and forgotten. It seemed to keep close proximity to the star the entire course of our observation, moving small distances in any direction. It seemed to use the star as a marker, camouflaging its existence as another celestial body. You could see what looked like a feint cone of green light reaching down to the horizon, and within that what looked like slightly darker tentacles of green light sucking in and spitting out bright objects...
