White hovering sphere with red and yellow lights in its center

Heading to bed at 23:40 and glanced outside the window and noticed a very bright object in the western sky. I thought it was a planet or a light but upon closer inspection, I noticed that there was movement - hovering sideways. I asked my wife to come to the window to get her take. The first words out of her mouth were, “Holy heck! What on earth is that?!” We both noted that it was moving/shimmering side to side. Unfortunately, I left my glasses downstairs but even so when I stared closer, I could see that red and bright yellow lights were swirling around the object's center. My wife had her glasses on and, again, corroborated my description. It hovered for about 15 minutes and then dropped slowly downward. Unfortunately, a large tree obscured most of the detail, so we didn’t see where it went. The object appeared to be far away, so it was difficult to determine size.
