Strange lights over the Boise foothills

My wife and I walked outside to say goodbye to a friend that was leaving to go home. When we reached his vehicle parked on the street, I noticed a VERY bright, orangish...white...and even redish at times, light hanging stationary over the NE foothills near the canyon below Lucky peak resevoir. Our friend left figuring it was a planet or something. The wife and I continued to watch the light curiosly knowing it wasn't a planet, or a fixed winged aircraft of any type. It hoverd silent and motionless except for the lights that were "dancing" on it. It almost sparkled. I went inside a grabbed some binoculars for a better look. Through the binoculars the light seemed to change shape, moving from one light and seperating into two, and back again. We were unable to notice this change with the naked eye. This took place over a period of about 30 minutes. Getting tired of sharing a pair of bi-nocs, I went inside to grab second pair. Upon my return my wife stated that the light had seperated in two,(this time visable with the naked eye), and slowly decended in tandom behind the mountains not to be seen again.
