Possible UFO or military aircraft above McCoy Stadium after the Pawtucket Red Sox - Scranton Willkes-Barre Rail Riders baseball game.

I was in attendance at the Pawtucket Red Sox baseball game on July 3, 2015, and the fireworks display afterwards. During the fireworks display, there was in the sky what appeared to be an aircraft with a steady red light and flashing green light hovering above and the west of the fireworks. My sister and brother in-law both witnessed the phenomenon as well.

On no less than three occasions the aircraft began to accelerate at a high rate of speed and then suddenly stop after a short distance. The moment the fireworks stopped after the grand finale, the aircraft did what appeared to be a U-turn in the sky, zig-zagged a bit as though it were drunk, and then shot off at a high rate of speed.

I have seen military aircraft perform similar aerial maneuvers, such as the F-22 Raptor. Therefore, I did not immediately assume that it was a UFO. Nevertheless, it certainly was not any kind of commercial or private aircraft.
