a large round hot pink balloon object with golden rays of light shooting out under it.

i came out on my back porch which faces west and happened to look up and saw a hot pink balloon shape object. I grabed my binocculars and looked only to see a big round object that was shooting out rays of golden light at the bottom in morse code style. I started to go get my video camera and had a strong feeling not to at that moment the craft moved up a little higher real fast. The sky was clear temp, 78 in the shade wind calm and high altitude not to far away from the sun was the craft. I observed it for about 3 minutes or more. It would stop hover, move up when i directed my thoughts toward it. Finally it gave a steady pulsating of light from the bottom and went stright up and blanked out completly. Just before it disappered the rays of light went from morse code style to a fast steady pulsating. It was overhead in our town.
