Circular object scene off I-5 in Sacramento's night sky.

My wife was driving with me and my two sons ages 5 & 11 on I-5 at about 8:50 on Sunday August 28th when we saw a circular object to our right flying about 200 feet in the sky moving and at a distance of about 4 street blocks from us. The object moved back and forth at a fairly good speed, much faster than we drove which was about 70 miles an hour. The object was multiple colors, at times all blue with a few white lights, sometimes mostly red. We could also see the shadow of the body which was disk like. As we continued to drive I watched through the back window with my 11 year old son. We noticed it jet straight up in the air and then drop like a rock toward the ground before stoping and then moving in other directions. We continued to watch for about 5 minutes until it was out of view.
