I very see jets and helicopters on a regular basis, due to Indianapolis International Airport & the National Guard Armory in Shelby Co.

When I was driving home from work (Indianapolis, IN.), I saw a couple of lights that didn't seem too peculiar. One light (the brighter one) originally caught my attention because if was bright like a helicopter spotlight then it turned around the dimmer light and it didn't seem to have blinking lights like on the wingtips or belly of conventional aircraft, the other light seemed to "twinkle" red and green (or blue) lights with a solid white light.

I got home trying not to lose them but I lost the first "helicopter" and brighter light but still saw the smaller light just barely over the tree line in my backyard facing almost due west towards or even past Indianapolis. I got a pair of small pair of binoculars out of my car and to try to get a better view of whatever I was seeing, when I went inside to get a larger pair of binoculars with a little better range.

I could not make out any discernible shape but it looked as if the blue or green light was on the right bottom and the red flashing light was on the left edge of the object.

I thought that if it was an airliner or something it should have moved much quicker and not look to me sitting almost motionless.
