Object with rapidly flashing lights gliding through night sky silently over Binghamton,NY

On the evening of June 5, 2013, at 10:05 pm my adult daughter and I observed an oddly moving flying craft with several strobe lights rapidly flashing--one was red and others were white. Flashing was very bright and continuous.

Object moved quite rapidly across the sky, overhead and slightly to the south. It moved from east to west,northwest. It appeared closer than a commercial jet but made no sound whatsoever. It made a gliding /floating type of drift through the sky but was definitely propelled forward quite rapidly.

The night sky was calm and clear, stars were visible. We watched the object for about 2 - 3 minutes. Flashing remained consistent as did the direction and speed of the object. The movement reminded me of a helicopter, however, the lack of any sound was not consistent with a helicopter.
