Bright Blue & Red Object in North Valley

Looking NNE from 35th Ave and Cholla area. Sky was dark, pre-dawn.

At approximately 6:45am on the morning of 12/24/2011 I was in my backyard smoking a cigarette when I noticed a bright deep blue light in the NNE sky. As I watched, the light seemed to dance, circling and turning, rising and falling, and changing color from a bright deep blue to a bright vibrant red. The light appeared to stretch and change shape (elongate) briefly as it changed color and direction.

I believe the object to be quite some distance from my location so I was unable to determine the size/shape of the light. Nor could I hear any sounds emanating from the light. The changes in direction however were precise and deliberate. From my perspective the light seemed to be traveling very fast and change direction using a VERY tight radius. The light would change color from blue to red and then back to blue. There were NO “blinking” lights associated with this light, and on occasion the light seemed to disappear only to reappear in another similar area but traveling in a different direction.
