Bright object flying in strange patterns between Olathe/Gardner

Around 9pm as I was driving between Gardner and Olathe, I spotted a large bright object moving in very strange patterns a mile or so away from me in the sky. At first I figured it was a drone or plane from the nearby airport, but I decided to drive around and follow it for a while. It began flying closer then further away from me, in a very unnatural patters, almost like a figure-8 from side to side. It also seemed to change from a bright white/blue, to green, to red, to blue. It remained on the country roads between Gardner and Olathe. I eventually drove into a dead-end country road, so I sat and watched the object begin to hover and drift away, disappearing in the distance.

Possibly related—On the same roads I have experienced some strange encounters. I have been driving at dusk and “ran over” some sort of bright shimmer crossing the road. At first I mistook it for a raccoon or possum. But soon realized I drove “through” the shimmer rather than ran over something! I get some crazy goosebumps around that area. It makes me nervous sharing these , but hopefully someone has other occurrences between southwest Olathe and Gardner/the New Century Aircenter.
