It was dark, no lights used, 8:40pm, 60x zoom. This is a video of a craft that appeared as a bright Orange light for about 5 minutes, then turned into a flying craft whose lights appeared in sequence; first red [right], then white [middle] and then blue [left]. It appeared to fly away along the treetops [70 feet], no radar there. If you look at the time this craft took [slow] in front of my trees [remember day shot] and going over, a normal plane should have been over my whole property in seconds [of course never that close at night]. It was not a plane, it was hovering. One important thing to notice is the so-called wing-tip-lights [red and blue] are always facing me, in front, when hovering overhead in trees, over me [it appeared small not size of a plane], and as it leaves my yard.
1.) The video clip is broken into two parts, to show the craft coming toward me and craft passing over me and out of my yard. Watch the color of the lights.
If you look closely at the craft lights coming toward me, the Blue light is on left [see 2:23-2:38] and Red light is on right facing me as it began coming toward me.
2.) When the craft passed over Tree [70 feet] and me, and flew out over my yard it still showed a Blue light on left side [see 4:08-4:32-4:40] and a Red light on right side, which gave the appearance it was still facing me. The lights should have showed the opposite light colors for the position facing back of craft, which is Red light on left and Green light on right.
Also, once craft stopped hovering over top of my tree it took off quickly and I turned facing NE and continued filming it, and the craft in video shows it made an [5:36] ACUTE VERTICAL ASCENSION. Who flies a plane like that? It is said, the thrust to weight ratio has to be greater than 1.0. On top of that, you have to build up a lot of speed, there was not enough time for a plane to do that. What about Passengers? Stall Speed? No sound. - As always enjoy! -orbstats

About Aviation Lights - Basically the Red light is on Left and Green light is on Right [front view].
When an aircraft is facing [front] you; the Green light is on left and Red light is on right.
When aircraft is going away from you [back view]; the Green light is on right and Red light is on right. [link]
On YAHOO.COM: AVIATION QUESTION:
Why do the planes fly straight up, straight down, sideways, some leave jetstreams that are visible some do not?
ANSWER: You have been misled by an illusion that results from the angle at which you are seeing the airplanes. Airplanes DO NOT fly straight up, straight down, or sideways. The vapor trails sometimes appear to go in the directions you describe, but only because you see the trails and did not see the angle at which the airplane was flying. For example, an airplane coming straight toward you may leave a trail that makes it look like it went straight up, but it really didn't; it just passed over you.
Airplanes fly straight and level at a set altitude most of the time, and climb and descend at reasonable slopes. To see what this is like, buy a ticket and ride in an airliner. You won't see a single one ever go straight up, straight down, or sideways.
About high altitudes. Turbine engines operate more efficiently at higher altitudes. So airlines are saving fuel, not wasting it, by operating at altitude.

YAHOO CANADA: Can a plane fly straight up into the sky?
Generally speaking, no, an airplane cannot fly straight up.
Normally the airplane generates lift with the wings. The wings produce a lifting force as they move forwards through the air. However, if the airplane aimed straight up, the lifting force (if any) produced by the wings would push it to one side, instead of pushing it up, so the wings would be useless. Because of this, the only way to fly straight up is with engines so powerful that they can push the entire weight of the airplane upwards. Ordinary airplanes don't have engines anywhere near that powerful, so they can't fly straight up.
There are some military fighter aircraft that have very powerful engines, and they can fly straight up for very brief periods. It burns a lot of fuel, though, so it's not a normal regime of flight.
