Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Multi colored lights red , Orange and white lights hovering in wester night sky intensely bright , no sound

this object was to the west north west of home at altitude (guessing )1500' to 2500' . was circle , with alternating lights mostly red , orange a fire ,and smaller white lights . all lights were intensely bright , brighter than any star in sky . it was almost motionless but was slowly moving up 2 degrees and same downward . then it would move slowly 3 degrees to west . A aircraft to the west 7 to 10 degrees and minimum 2000' above object flew above and to left of object and no response from object . distance from me i cannot really judge but index finger would not cover object but my thumb would , hope that helps . I watched it for about a minute and then called my 28 yr old son to look at object an tell me what he saw ....he was flabbergasted because he said ..daddy , that's no star or plane and we watched it for about 5 minutes more . i turned to him and asked ..where did it go ? do you still see it ? he said no and we both concurred that either th! e object just cut all lights off or it took off too fast for our eyes . this is as detailed as i can get . thank you
