I saw a brightly glowing object in the sky that was pulsating red, blue, green and white light and was completely soundless.

On 3 January 2013, my son and I were watching TV in our living room. Our breakfast nook is just off the living room and I happened to glance out of the large windows to our left. I saw a brightly glowing object in the sky that was pulsating red, blue, green and white light. My son asked me if I saw what was outside the window and asked we what it was. I replied that I didn’t know and we both went outside to get a better look. The object was almost due east of our home and we didn’t hear any sound. It was above a ridge to the east and was completely motionless. After a few minutes I went back inside to get my binoculars and then observed the object for a minute or two. I gave the binoculars to my son to see if he could make out any details. He could not, so I got my iPad and took some still photos. There was still no sound and the object did not move. I switched the iPad to movie mode and shot a one-minute video of the object. Since it was rather cold we both! went back inside. About a minute later I noticed that the object was still in the same position and still pulsating with light so I went back outside and shot another one-minute video of the object. This all occurred at about 8:15 pm PST.

The next day I examined the videos and found that what we both thought was a single light had other, clearly visible lights around it. There seems to be a triangular shape to the lights. I have no idea what it was that we saw but I’ve never seen anything like it before. I enjoy seeing the night sky and know many of the constellations. Orion was well above the object as was Jupiter. The night was crystal clear. I don’t know what I observed I know what I saw. I am a high school chemistry teacher and my son is in training to be a firefighter.
