Object was above arboretum. Moving rapidly sideways and up and down then hovering

Object was white and circular. It made no noise and left no contrail. It moved rapidly side to side and up and down. It appeared to be rotating and there were faint blue and red lights on the outer part of the saucer. No aircraft could have maneuvered like that. Clear sky, light haze, 70 degs.. Suddenly/abruptly it disappeared as I was watching it, just poof, it was gone.

I am a retired Senior Intelligence Officer and am a trained observer. It was definitely not an aircraft.
