Saw strange light weaving and circling nearby lake

I am a student at the University of North Carolina. The two of my friends that also saw the lights are a two high school students at nearby schools.

A couple of my friends and I were hanging out down at the park in our neighborhood. I looked over the small lake in our subdivsion and saw a light that was flashing between red and blue weaving in the sky while circling the lake. I could only make out lights. I watched the light for 5 minutes or so before alerting my friends to it, not wanting it to be a plane or a helicopter and appear stupid. As far as I could tell I couldn't hear the sound of an engine or whirring of blades such as a helicopter. After I told my friends, they confirmed my beliefs that it was a UFO. It continued circling the lake for 15 minutes or so before heading off towards the north.
