Moving lights in the sky seen in different variations.

On this night I spotted several objects in the sky. At first they look like regular stars. These objects are normally really bright white or a yellowish color. They move in circles and zig-zag motions. Some of the objects move very quickly and others move very slow. Some of the objects seem to have flashing lights. The flashing lights usually appear in blue, green, and red colors. I have seen the objects move fully across the sky as well. When they move like this, some fast and some slow. They have moved in all directions of the sky. Some are alone and others in pairs. I've even seen four of them in a group moving together. The objects that cross the sky are white in color and resemble a star. Some dim and some bright. I've seen them move across the sky and literally light up really bright for a split second and then keep moving. I have devoted a lot of my time to looking for these objects at night for the past year. My family has even been involved in tryin! g to figure these things out. The most incredible sighting was with my mother in Grundy Center. About 2am, we had seen several moving objects like we have in the past. But, out of nowhere an object appeared. It lit up bright for a split second and then shot flames like a fireball and left a small short trail of what appeared to be fumes. The object went so quick and went directly upward into the sky never to be seen again. That time we both literally ran for the house. We truly believe that these objects are not stars, satellites or any human/man made crafts. All summer we sat outside at night and looked up into the sky. Repeatedly week after week, we witnessed the same objects in a few different variations. We also have several witnesses some family, some friends and co-workers. Even the neighbors.
