Has anyone else in RI, CT or MA seen this?

I have seen this light in the night sky since the summer of 2004. I see this light in the south eastern sky after dark on a very regular basis, any night that is clear it is about 40 degrees above the horizon. The light at first glance looks like any other star but if you fixate your eye to the other stars in the area, this one twinkles more AND it has motion up down and left right. The color as best I can describe is like a police car light bar red/white/blue at great distance. I can't tell how far away the object is. I have observed this light with 2 other witnesses at different times. I do not think it is a planet, air craft or satellite. I do see aircraft in the sky occasionally when I see this object. My guess would be that it can be seen from Connecticut and Mass also. It would seem that the object could be off the coast over the Atlantic Ocean but I cant be shure of this. I would like to hear if anyone else from the RI, CT or MA area has seen this.
