Strange lights in the sky

I didn’t know who to send this to so I’m hoping you can pass this to the right person or suggest where I can find out more.

On Saturday night from around 9 pm til 4am Sunday I witnessed what looked like some strange light(s) in the sky. I live in Bigger, South Lanarkshire in Scotland – A few miles from the start of the Scottish Borders.

At first what I thought I was looking at was either a bright star in the sky or an aeroplane. However, having watched it for 5-10 minutes I was intrigued enough to get my binoculars. On closer inspection it was clear that the light was not coming from an aeroplane. From a distance the object looked like the brightest star in the sky with a fair amount of illumination in the sky around it. Through the binoculars the object appeared to be a series of blue, reddish, purple and white lights almost like a kaleidoscope of colour and appearing in a state of flux and flirtatious movement. The intensity of the light appeared to vary over a period of time and the object moved across the sky as you would think a star or planet would.

From my location I initially viewed the object whilst I was looking 135 degrees south east from my home in Biggar (According to the compass on my I-Phone).

I’m intrigued to find out and understand what this was as I never seen anything like this before.

Thanks in advance.
