Multi-colored orb in the clear sky. Looked like a 'disco ball', then changed position.

Because it was a clear night, I went outside to look at the stars, while our dog was out before bed. I noticed a large orb in the eastern sky and was perplexed that it was so bright. Thought it might be a close planet.

I went inside the house to get binoculars. Upon further scrutiny, I saw that there were different colored lights (red, green, white, blue-ish) rotating around the orb. Trying to rationalize what this was, I thought of a few things and then discarded those thoughts because they didn’t make sense. My husband was already in bed, but I felt it necessary to ask him to come downstairs and look for himself. I certainly wanted a second person to affirm my sighting…no matter what it was. After he and I watched it for a bit and conversed about what it might be, we opted to call a neighbor to look to see if he could see it from his house. We are at a higher elevation (maybe 20-30 feet than he. He couldn’t see the object we were looking at..

The object changed from an ‘orb’ to a flatter configuration and then almost like it stood on its edge, still circular. I watched it for another hour, and then went to bed. No changes in position or intensity.
