My wife was in our backyard taking the dogs out when she started yelling at me to come out back. We were facing South from our house when I saw what I initially thought was fireworks due to the object emitting white/red/green/blue lights. It came up like fireworks would but then it hovered in midair. The perceived distance and speed of the object told me that in order for it to streak across the sky like it did, it had to have been traveling at a VERY fast rate of speed. I didn't believe it was a commercial or military aircraft because how fast it was moving and more importantly after it traveled west horizontally, it made a rapid direction change east, too difficult a maneuver for any known aircraft. We also captured a short video of the object that is very blurry due to it being an old digital camera and not a cam corder
