Odd Moving Glittery Light

I noticed this round glittery white, pinkish,greenish light, it was moving in odd patterns, zigzags, bouncy dance like movements, it would zip fast left or right quite a distance then return. It would move straight ahead very slowly, then pick up its pace. This has gone on for four nights and is always at the same time. At one point when it was closer the first night it looked like beings moving back and forth inside a brightly lit window, but I only got a quick glimpse of it before it took off again. It has always shown up a little north west of Bogus Basin Ski area from about 4 to 5 miles from downtown Boise going west on State St. Last night the round light did a couple of things differently than the previous nights, as I was watching it, at the bottom of the light there was a bright greenish burst of light just for a second. Then it did its regular zigzags and back and forth up and down dancing movements, then it started shooting out these sort of long looking things that were glowing sort of whitish and as they fell they vanished. Also, lastnight was the first time the glittery light went out, three different times, but reappeared in the same exact spot. I did notice that if a car came down the main street we live by, the light would not move, until the car was gone. I have never heard a sound from this light. I will be watching for it again tonight.
