Silent aircraft hoovers near hospital

It was close to 9pm and our hospital was only a km away, I got off work late and wanted to visit a friend there.. I told my wife I would be back shortly, I drove down my road which only has a french school on it and is about a mile long. A car that was driving very slowly when I met up to it was my neighbor from several houses down the street, he had his wife and child with him and he was pointing while his wife and child were lookingout the window, it was dark by this time, I looked up. About apx. 1000 ft away, and about 500 ft in the air, a very bright white light in the middle, a flashing red light on both sides of the white light and a blue light flashing {slower then the red ones}on both sides of them. My first thought is that this is a helicopter, it was close to the hospital and helicopters come and go from there frequently. My neighbor then pulled over to the side of the road and so did I, we shut are cars off after watching it for a minute, this thing was not that far away, it wasn't moving at all, it was a lot larger then any helicopter that I've ever seen, and their wasn't one bit of noise coming from it....... we watched it idle and talked about it for a few more minutes, my neighbors left and I watched on, I drove my car a bit more up the road to be closer to it, after again turning off my car I watched it for maybe 5 more minutes before it started moving, moved very slowly toward my direction and just before reaching me made a turn again keeping its same slow noise, it headed toward the east untill it went out of site. ......sum it all up....I never seen anything like it, I phoned the RCMP and they told me to phone the airport and they put me through to the control tower at Ch'town airport, minutes after speaking with them and reporting it, their werea few small aircraft sent up to scout the area I mentioned to them.....but it was gone by then, I would also like to mention the fact that my road is very close to the airport....maybe 3 miles d! irect line...they told me at the control tower that their were no flights in or out of there in the last 2 hours, and that airplanes had a red light and a green light.......not blue........but then again...this was no plane.
