Odd Lights in Colorado Sky

At about 5:15am I awoke suddenly and was immediately compelled to look outside in the southeastern sky. The sky was clear and many stars were evident. I first saw what appeared to be a military aircraft flying from south to north - a white light with a red light and a blue light on it, and was flying rather fast. Not an odd occurrence given that there are several military bases in the front range area here in Colorado. However, I knew it was not a military craft when it stopped in mid-air and the red and blue lights disappeared. The single white light, which was now a little brighter (like a very bright star), started to bob up and down and around in the air, almost like a flying insect or a moth. I knew that since I was seeing this against the fixed backdrop of the stars that this one object was indeed moving, and it wasn't just my eyes. It became stationary, and while I was watching for additional movements I fell asleep. The total time I watched this event was about 15 minutes. I heard the rumble of two other military jets crossing the airspace during this time but did not see them.
