Extremely bright 'twinkling' star-like light hovering in cloudless night sky.

Husband and wife witnessed extremely bright light in WNW sky, aprox 45 degrees between directly overhead and western horizen. Object had very bright, twinkling glow, little if no movement in any direction. Gave impression of the "Christmas Star" with twinkling rays sparkling outward. Slight hints of red and green visible occassionally. With 10X50 binoculars, an outline of rows of lights (estimate 8 or 10) could be seen. Also, with binocular observation, object could be seen to be rotating as the rows of lights turned out of sight and reappeared. Couple observed object for approximately 30 minutes, during which time it seemed to hover in place although the rotation of the earth was moving the line of vision out of sight due to trees. Night was cloudless, stars and aircraft also clearly visible.
