Spectacular pulsating lights forming a sphere fixed in the night sky

I have never filed a report of this nature before, but I can't ignore what I saw so here goes:

I live directly on the coast, so in anticipation of last night's full moon, I settled myself on an outdoor bench that faces due east and overlooks the Atlantic ocean. The night sky was crystal clear and even with the full moon, the stars were bright as ever. Roughly 30 minutes into my moon watch, I noticed something "gliding" north to south fairly low overhead. The light configuration was odd in that there two steady white lights spaced slightly apart with a third whitish-green light between them that seemed to pulse slightly somehow, as opposed to a blinking light on a standard aircraft. In fact, there were no blinking lights anywhere on this object that I could see. And it made no sound whatsoever.

As I was watching this object move further south, two larger (or lower) orange round objects moving in tandem, each with what looked like yellow and orange light striations coming up from them at an angle, also slid by overhead moving north to south and completely silent. The first object turned slightly south eastward and began to head slowly out over the ocean. At this point, I was still trying to believe that this was an aircraft of some sort, but the object stopped suddenly out over the water and became fixed in the sky where it also appeared to progressively become brighter and brighter until I noticed what looked like colors mixing in with the original bright white light. I just kept staring at this thing, trying to come up with a "logical" explanation for what it could be.

After 10 minutes or so, I took a chance and ran up to my house to grab my binoculars; I was afraid that the object would disappear if I took my eyes off of it. But when I got back down to my bench, it was still there and I was able to see it clearly and with great detail through the binoculars. I still can't find the right words to describe the colors I saw on/in/around the object. They possessed a brilliance and clarity and purity like I've never seen. They were not flashing, but rather pulsating and shifting somehow. Red, green, blue, white, violet... There were no shafts or beams striking out from the object. The colors were cohesive and unified, forming a fixed sphere. The colors shifted and morphed across the object but I never saw them stay still. Brilliant white light lines appeared interspersed the individual colors somehow, almost like borders but not really because it all pulsed at such a high rate that these white lines were never stationary. At one point, the ! sphere seemed to elongate into a cylinder and then it returned to a sphere.

I called my husband, who was out of town, to describe to him in real time what I was looking at. I also called my son, who lives a block away and asked him to come over to see what he thought about the odd thing. We both watched it though binoculars for nearly an hour. Eventually, the cold air off the water and the night moisture forced us indoors, but I went back out later to see if the object was still there... It was gone. Neither of us have any idea what it was nor have we ever seen anything like it before. Suffice it to say, it was spectacular.
