white shimmering spherical object in western sky just above the horizon after sundown

At 9 PM I left my house and started to drive west down my road. In the still light sky about 5 degrees off of the horizon I saw a blinking white object. It was not a plane as its trajectory did not change.

I watched it for 3 minutes and it moved laterally to the north about 10 degrees. I drove through my development and kept seeing it (after the 10n degree move to the north). It stayed in same position but appeared to 'shimmer' and 'shake" .

I took 2 photos of it while the sky was still dark blue. I called my 30 year old son-in-law to look for it. I drove 5 miles to the east to a store, it took 10-15 minutes.

The sky had darkened but the object was still in the same location relative to the horizon & laterally . I took a few more photos from the store parking lot and a short video.

I then went into the store. I left the store at 10:15 and the object was gone.

While driving home, heading west, I saw 3 large white lights in the southern sky but at the sa! me elevation above the horizon as observed with the object in the western sky.

The next day (Saturday 08/03/13) I met with my son-in- law who saw the same white shimmering spherical object on it the western horizon.
