I noticed what I thought was a star shining way too brightly. I called my wife to have a look and she confirmed that it was no star. There seemed to be many colors flashing.

1 object was seen about 10 inches above the northern mountains ( approx 15 miles distant )There seemed to be a series of pulses of red, amber and green with the occasional blue which was brighter than the other colors. It was moving very slowly in an eastern direction. We scanned the sky and noticed another to the east much farther off and another to the west which was much brighter and semmed to be much closer. I looked with my binoculars and could actualy see that the closest object to the west of us looked to be revolving with the light patterns. My wife looked and confirmed what I was seeing. The fourth object appeared close to the first object and could be seen moving in an easterly direction and went out of sight behind a tree. I'm no expert in judging distances, but I estimate that the closest object in the west had to be at least 100 feet in diameter for us to see it so clearly. It did not appear saucer like at all, but rather more spherical.
