Craft speeding in diving position, with an orange/yellow glow. Then it came to a hault and hovered for a brief time then was gone

Myself and three other witnesses saw a small aircraft speeding, on a decline with a orange/yellow glow. We followed it thinking it was a small plane or helicopter losing control, speeding fast and nosediving. We were in our truck following it thinking it could possibly crash into residential homes or to the Bay. As we got closer in chase, approaching the woods on our left and the baseball field on our right, it came to a complete halt behind the baseball field, hovering above a home and behind trees. We turned the corner of the right side of the ballfield and pulled over. We looked up and saw a octagon/hexagon shape aircraft with a blue light on one side, red light on other, and while lights in the middle. The height of it in the air was probably at the height of top of water tower, it was very clear to us. Stepped out of our truck to take a picture, then I moved outside my truck door to get a better angle and the craft shifted to the right and all lights went out and was black. We could still see the shadow of it, we jumped back in the truck as it started to move behind us back to field. We still were pursuing it as fast as possible and it crossed over to the woods. We saw some men at the field watching exactly what we saw, they got in their truck to follow it and then we followed them. We could not catch up fast enough as the craft went back in larger wooded areas. Shortly two helicopters came flying up from behind up and were surveying the area with spotlights. We were told to leave as they blocked and closed the property entrance to the woods, the was the last we saw of it.
