Red flashing lights on loud large hovering thing which stayed in the sky for over an hour

At approximately 2:00 AM we heard what sounded like some sort of aircraft that was extremely loud with a rumbling sort of sound. I looked outside and saw something in the sky with red flashing lights. It wasn't really moving. Mostly, it was staying in one place(almost hovering). We went outside;occasionally this thing would move a little(one direction or the other). It was dark. It was hard to make out the actual shape this thing was. The lights weren't really in a uniform pattern. The lights were flashing in a zig-zaggy formation. Neighbors came out because they also heard the LOUD rumbling noise. We talked about the possibility of it being a helicopter. However, it did not sound or look like a helicopter. And it stayed around, for at least, over an hour. A couple of cars had also pulled over down the street. They were also looking at this thing. In checking with the Police, no helicopters were dispatched at that time. We have no idea what it was! We didn't see it go away because we came in the house due to being spooked.
