Westside of Cincinnati, bright red and blue lights making abrupt U turns and then dropping straight down from the sky, quick as light

On the eve of the first new moon (January 1st, 2014), around 10:15p.m., I was out walking my dog in Western Hills, Cincinnati, Ohio. I had walked up to the top of my street (which is approximately a 32° angle uphill), and turned the corner walking to the right and past the first house on the right. My dog then stopped to use the bathroom in the grass, while I stood there looking north, staring off into the dark between the large clearing of two houses. (This would be looking in the direction as if I were at the top of my street looking down). I saw what looked at first to be just airplane lights, red and blue, out of the corner of my eye. Didn't think much, until I realized these lights were moving usually fast. So I turned my attention directly on them, and within a few seconds, saw the lights stop and hover, and then all of a sudden they made a complete "sideways U-turn" and started headed east. I literally said out loud, "What ((deleted)) is that??!!" (talking to my dog). Just as quickly, the lights swerved back to the left (west), and flew for just a second until it stopped and hovered again! I proceeded to get my phone camera out to videotape, and as soon as I pulled the video application up, the red light in the sky went out, leaving just this fluorescent blue light, which suddenly dropped straight down, quick as lightning! Like it just fell from the sky. I focused my camera on where I thought the light had dropped, and caught it on camera shooting straight back up.. it then dropped down once more, which I saw with my eyes, but did NOT catch on camera (even though my camera was focused right on it) and between messing with my phone, I did not see the light come back up. About a minute later I saw both red and blue lights in the sky again, seeming to fly north until they just disappeared suddenly. It was the strangest, scariest, yet most exciting experience I've ever seen… I didn't even think it was real. I asked my dog, "Did that really just happen!?" It happened so quick, I literally almost doubted myself. But there is no doubt about what I saw. There was definitely SOMETHING there, and it was NOT NORMAL, and NOT an optical illusion... I cannot explain it to be anything other than a UFO.
