Red, Blue, & White Lights circle Stoney Creek/Rochester Area, Move North

On the evening of 12/30/03 approximatly midnight, I looked out my window towards the north, towards Washington Township. I saw a red, blue, and white flashing lights in the air, circling the area to the north. The red & blue lights seemed to be flashing like the lights on a police car. I watched the lights circle the area to the north around Stoney Creek for about 5 minutes, then I got my binoculars to get a better look. I was able to see three flashing red lights on the object along with an undetermined number of white and blue lights. I watched as the object flew to the west, towards Rochester. As it flew to the west, I lost site of the object from my vantage point. I went to the west side of the house and was able to continue tracking the object as it flew in a circular pattern over Rochester for about 5 minutes. I then lost site of the object behind some trees for the next 10 minutes. The object reappeared and flew south turned around and flew to the north, at which point I lost track of it. The object seemed to be moving about the speed that a helicopter would fly, but made no sound. The entire event lasted about 30 minutes. My backgound is: 24 years old, physics graduate student, never have done any drugs and don't drink alcohol. Until now, I have never seen anything flying that a could not explain.
