February 20th, 2006 - Bright ball changing direction and shape in Western sky over Western Massachussettes with green and blue lights.

My daughter and I were facing West. A VERY very bright ball light started moving up and west into the sky at a much faster speed than an aircraft, with absolutely no sound. When it reached 3/4 of the way up, it rotated 45 degrees or so, and we could see what looked like an underside. There were 3-4 bright blue lights in semi-circles at the top and bottom long sides, and greenish 1/4 circles at the front and back (assuming that was the front and back) then it stayed in that position and took off to the North-East going only slightly faster than it's ascencion, and kind of circled up/down and went completely out of my visual range. I can't say that is was round or oblong or what, but the way it looked was a kind of oblong star shape, if that makes any sense. And the night is completely clear with little or no moon at this time.
