Multicolored strange object over Chicago

We saw a bright, swift moving light above our roof. Different colors, such as red, blue, white, with a bit of yellow and green flashed across it.

Its movements were remarkable, as it seemed to move abruptly left to right, up and down, in a zigzag motion, and in between it just hovered. It's still visible, although it seems to be leaving, as it has grown dimmer and harder to see the different color flashes.

It's up far too high in the air to be a helicopter. When it was closer, the flashing lights seemed to be moving in such a way as to indicate a disk shape.

((NUFORC Note: Possible twinkling star. PD))
