Large stationary star-like object that changed shape, emitted color, "danced", had pieces fall off in form and then get reabs

I got up to go to the bathroom when a very bright "twinkling star" caught my eye. As I stared at it, I realized it was not a star, but a "star color" object that was dancing, jumping, changing shape, emitting colors, making trails, had smaller pieces break off and at one point formed a line and then was reabsorbed. It was at about 30-40 degrees from the ground looking east -- maybe a tad southeast. I woke everyone in the house up (4 of us) and we all observed this for about 15 minutes. It dimmed and faded away, but reappeared when we went back to bed. Given the meteor activity this week, we all thought that was what we were watching, but then realized that a meteor isn't stationary, but moves at a high rate of speed. Very exciting and disturbing at the same time.
