A large bright white light with spikes of light shooting out and then retracting .

A large bright white light with spikes of light shooting out and then retracting has been appearing nightly for over a month. We assumed it was a star or planet. Last night we watched it move to the right faster than a star would move. Then it moved back to the original position. Then it moved towards us and then it moved far away backwards at speed even planes cannot move. Then back towards us. Then it stopped moving. We have no idea what it is now, but someone should look at it and explain it.

Our elevation is 700 ft., +41° 50' 24.26", -72° 22' 31.59" (41.840073, -72.375441), and we have a large view of the sky. It looked like there were briefly some blue rays of light at one point but I am not sure of that.I am sure there is a good explanation, it would be really nice to know since I see it through my window while I'm in bed. I did take photos of it with my Iphone.when you enlarge photo two other lights appear next to it one on each side.
