Butterly shaped rainbow UFO

I saw an oval shaped object in the Northern sky around the height of the surrounding hills. At first I thought it was coming from the Yakima Firing Center but after watching for about 30 seconds, started doubting that idea.

It was oval in shape and pulsated rainbow colors around the oval shape. It moved straight to the right, than straight down, back to the left, back straight up and than ro the right again. What was unique about this was when the object moved, the rainbow colors that were pulsating around the oval shape, extended into what I can best describe as "butterfly" wings on both sides of the object. It was very pretty to watch. I could only see the rainbow colors in the "butterfly" wings when it moved, not when it was stationary. I was watching my puppy who got me up and went back inside for a few minutes. When I came back out it was gone.

The next morning I looked in the vicinity that I saw this object, wondering if one of the surrounding hills was there. There were no hills, just blue sky.
