cluster of white lights that changed shapes

I and my two daughters were coming out of a restaurant when I looked up into the sky as I was stretching and I saw a bright light which I thought was the north star, but it was in the southern hemisphere. We got in the car and drove home all the time watching it. Before we reached our home, I pulled over and got out my binoculars to look at this light. It was not an aircraft because it had not green or red obstruction lighting. It just hung there. Through my binoculars it looked like a rectangle with piece broken off at the end. Then a red light appeared on the end. It then turned into a cluster of round white lights. Then a red light appeared in it. The red light went away and a wide line appeared through the center of it. The line faded away and it remained a cluster of white lights. My daughters looked and it and said it looked like it was turning. When I looked at it again the lights went from bright white to a purple, then went out and we never saw it again. I have seen a lot of things in the sky and have dismissed all of what appeared to be out of the ordinary as some type of aviation craft that I am not familiar with. However this is just something I cannot explain.
