Sighting of a UFO that could not be explained by a physics professor/pilot.

I stepped outside and noticed a light in the sky. After a couple of moments it began to move (at a "normal" rate of speed). I didn't really think anything of it. When it crossed the horizon of the opposing mountain range (about 5 miles away, 3-5000ft) it caught my attention and I began watching it closely.

During a period of about five minutes, I watched the object cover vast areas (several miles), several times over, in the blink of an eye. The object would move, stop on a dime, and immediately change directions with angles nearly as sharp as 180 degrees. The object (its lights) were frequently changing, and/or blinking. I saw red lights, white lights, and at least one other color. At one point, when the object was stopped, I counted the white light as it flashed 26 times in approximately 3 seconds. Suddenly, the object began its rapid movement again, and finally disappeared.
