I saw erratic, colored lights in the sky last night

I am a UFO sceptic with a Ph.D. But last night something very odd happened. I was sitting watching TV when I suddenly noticed a bright light in the sky that oscillated back and forth. It was way up there (30,000 feet?) and very luminous like a star, but it moved noticeably left and right while the other stars stayed put. When I put my scope (8 inch) on it, it became clear that this object was something strange. It consisted of orange globes of light that formed lines between themselves and connected themselves to each other by these lights. The lines of light moved around erratically as the globes themselves changed colors. The object was slowly moving and changing shape over and over again as it just moved around up there in the sky. At one point it definitely looked like a saucer, with a puslating light underneath and a series of colored lights running acorss its middle. At another point it looked like the bottom of a guitar with yellow, glowing lines running acrosss its bottom. The whole experience left me feelig extremely worried: it literally seemed out of this world to me, that is, like nothing I have ever seen before and like nothing that I currently have the resources to understand. I am very eager to know if anyone else has seen this object last night in the Oregon skies. Please leave a posting if you have. I want to know that this thing was.
