I had just taken a shower and was walking to my bedroom when I noticed something out of my Western facing windows. I live on the top (6th) floor of a building in downtown Cincinnati which has a commanding view of the Western part of the city including Union Terminal. It appeared to be spherical / oval in shape and intermittently flashed bright red light and silvery white lights on it's surface. It's speed and altitude was fairly constant and not overly fast as it flew due North over the Western part of the city at ~300 ft, then it climbed to ~1,000 ft and turned NNE -- finally appearing to climb straight up into the clouds. At first I thought it might be a helicopter (bell type) due to it's spherical shape but observed no tail or rotors. The lights were strange because they almost looked like sunlight glinting off of the object or through it but the sun was almost directly above and behind cloud cover. Color of light was Red particularly when the object was close, then almost bluish white when it was higher and farther away. No noise. I finally realized I had a camera nearby but it was pretty far away at that point and I didn't check the camera settings and unfortunately overexposed the picture.
