UFO over State Captiol

New Years eve Fireworks Show at 6:10pm at Bushnell Park in Hartford, before the show started we saw a large object, couldn't tell if it was V shaped like b-2 or saucer shaped given the angle and line of sight but in the sky made a bit of a line shape, with multiple colored lights of a reddish orange color and a Green color.

The object appeared to hover behind the Capitol Building before falling rapidly then disappearing. What struck as as odd to cancel out what it could be are; though a plane or helicopter has the same colored lights, these lights seemed to alternate and if it were a plane then the a single light stretched across the entirety of both wings, aside from Medical helicopters from the hospital on the other side of town the capitol is a no fly zone this didnt take the shape of a helicopter,

There was no noise from the craft, which lifestar (local medical helicopter name) makes quite the noise when in the city area, we also canceled out the chanc! e of it being part of the fire works display, being it was before they went off, and was in the wrong direction.

Then shortly after the fireworks display started, and lucky enough to have my camera out with recording capabilities, the obeject was seen again this time on the other side of the captiol. unfortunately in video mode my camera has no zoom ability nor night vision, and appears as like that of a star in the sky. Though the object can be seen between the space of the capitol and where the fireworks were going off. Additionally towards the end of the encounter the object started a rapid descent, then a dead stop then it did it again and vanished, what strikes me odd is where the object vanished is a point of open sky, nothing between me and the object for it to hide behind, with a few flashes it was gone. The other object flashing below and to the right of it is a warning strobe on a flag pole, of the no fly zone. Some people noticed i was pointing my camera away from the fireworks which drew some curiosity but was answered when they saw the object themselves, i was lucky to get audio of two of these cases.

i've already uploaded it to youtube and will provide a link upon request.
