U.F.O Spotted by teen, At night (21:03) Giving out 5 colors or more of light

(my age is 15) So its a normal day like any other, i come home from school and i pass the day on the computer until 8:50pm (20:50) My mother asked me to go out and buy milk, as a quick errand, (21:02) when i walk out of the house and towards the corner store located about 4 houses away from mine. I look up to the dark blue sky and i see this big about blimp sized oval, there was a few stars around including an airplane, of course it couldn't have been a blimp because as i was so nervous my mind sort of sparked and was working faster then normal, i tried to identify the item because at first i really thought it was a blimp. It gave out a swooshing sound, that sounded like an airplane but not quite. When i stared at it for a few more second i notice there is no top that a blimp would have, which is the balloon that holds it up, It had about 5 different colors of light that the oval gave out, Orange, red, Blue, Green, and purple, some colors where flickering. As i just stare at it my heart begins to pound about 2x as fast, i thought to myself i have got to calm down, so i took a quick breathe, I could not identify the object at all as a known human built machine. It was Moving about half the time a plane would take to get from one place to another while watching it from the sky about 80 feet or so. I know defined it as a U.F.O. As i walk into the corner store i begin to look for a clock, it was 21:04, when i came out my heart still racing, i come home and try to explain it to my mother, but as usual i dont really think she believes me, she did however say "things happen to people and its unexplainable but don't expect seeing it again" as i told her that i was going out with the camera. i went out anyway and saw nothing, it really makes you regret not acting fast or having a camera even though its weird to do that i will always remember now that witness and proof is very important. I just really wish i had proof because frankly no one believes me. I don't know if anyone else saw it but this event surely changed my life - thank you for reading
