White and Yellow shiny starlike object moving irrationally and gracefully

My friend and I (3:39 am) had the windows in my apartment open and saw a asterisk esque shining light hovering around closely and far away. We watched it for 5 or 6 minutes to see if it was making the path to the airport east of here. We were unnerved to see that it was tilting back and forth, in a seesaw sort of motion across the sky. The colors would slowly shift, some colors hard to see, but some colors were white and yellow. When it had no lights on, the body indicated a very soft-edged cone shape with irrationally placed red lights. Its path circled in a diameter around the general downtown area. It was disturbing because it looked so defiantly different than the typical police helicopters, care flights, and airplanes. That had a lot to do with its non-linear path, and slow, but very graceful speed. I've never seen something like this before and wanted some insight on similar sightings, I didn't know if maybe extremely distant helicopters can give this impression, but then I doubt that. I doubt it because the light was very profile, it never moved in a three dimensional fashion, just sort of gave the illusion of moving two dimensionally. The irrational red and white blinking lights moved about this dark cone like object irrationally. It's also important to note that it was very large and resembled a huge shining star. One more thing to note is that you could not hear it like an airplane or helicopter. Two witnesses: Male
