Color and Shape Shifting, Incredible Speed

Through a high placed, 360 weather cam, we noticed something floating in the sky. It looked like it was over, or in the area of the local airport. The UFO was also flying pretty low, so it was definitely not a star or planet. It was at a distance where it was clearly visible. I am uncertain of how big it might have been, but it was probably about the width of a plane. Although the UFO was spherical, it was constantly changing shape and color. It went from a atomic rubber bouncing ball shape, to a planet with a ring shape, to a diamond shape, etc; all while emitting different colors. It floated still and without movement, then it would disappear for a couple seconds, only to reappear in a different spot close to where it was before. The UFO did this disappearing and reappearing a couple of times, staying in one spot for minutes at a time. Then the UFO dipped and zoomed vertically up to the sky at a phenomenal speed. There was only a faint light trail, nothing! significant. I thought that this might have been a drone, until I saw how fast this object flew into space.
