Bright flashing spherical light appearing in NW sky at dusk before any other stars , and disappears w/in the hr. No sound.

Please note that I first noticed a bright light over Mt. Taylor/Grants, NM, on on hwy 547, date: 8/31/16 @ 7:38 pm, disappearing behind a cloud at 9:02 pm; and have been logging almost nightly since then, including tonight, as the light shows up almost almost daily like clockwork. It will generally appears before any other stars are out, looks like a very bright planet? Close up pictures give appearrance of an 'eye of hurricane,' swirl like motions moving clockwise, maybe fireball?...center appears to have a solid spherical object, gold in color that moves/spins but always stays in the center, casts a shadow, and pulses, and flashes every 30 secs or so. On 9/20/16 @ 2:36 am, a bright light appeared very low to ground near base of Horace Mesa, and it flashed one time, and night was like day for a second. It's been observed moving at different rates of speed and and altitudes.
