Red/white lights on rotating box hovering, changed to green/blue lights as well when comes close and then flys away at surprising speed

Last night, as I tried to fall asleep in my sunroom I saw wat I thought to be a plane in front of me in the sky till I realized it was moving exceptionally slow. This box made an odd path around my house with white/red rotating lights. After a couple minutes it went from appearing very far away to HOVERING RIGHT ABOVE MY NEIGHBORS TREELINE (where I initially thought it was some sort of weather balloon but there was NO visible balloon over the box) where I got an exceptional view and I now regret not searching for my camera. The lights now included green an blue and rotated slowing just hovering not too distantly away. Next thing I knew the lights were flashing or blinking? and the object was suddenly far away and high and the sky where I could only make out red/white lights again.

Please let me know if anyone else has seen this on that night in Fairfax Virginia cause it was for sure not Santa!
