Light in the sky changing colors, moving very fast, dancing in one spot

It was Wednesday, June 11, 2008 at about 10:40pm. I looked out of the window, near the center of Houston, TX, looking to the east, and saw a light that looked somewhat like a blinking star. As I looked, it seemed to have different colors as it blinked. I also noticed that it didn't look hazy as if it were blinking from clouds passing by. My brother and my girlfriend came out, saw the same thing, but we all thought it could possibly be an airplane.

After about 5 min or so, the light was still in the same place in the sky, not seeming to get closer or further away. It looked extremely far away (remember, I compared it to a star at first, so I'd say it was some miles away). We got some very cheap binoculars and looked at it again. At that point, all 4 of us that were there all saw the same thing.

The light was moving around very fast, not seeming to be traveling anywhere, but just dancing around all different patterns in the same vicinity. The light was also not just red and green, but all different colors, constantly changing. I noticed that while I was watching, 2 planes flew by, about 3 min apart from each other, but they didn't go anywhere near the object or even in its direction. It was still there when my girlfriend and I left, which was a few minutes after 11pm. I wish I could see that direction from my apartment, but I can't because of the buildings.
