Sperical glowing craft over eugene oregon

I was walking in westmorland park with my girlfriend and noticed a bright object in the sky. It was dusk but still light enough out to not see any stars yet and also rather cloudy. What caught my attention was that this bright light(brighter than any normal star) was really blue and moving.

Upon stopping and watching, it proceded to move about into and out of a large cloud and change color from blues to reds and whites. There was no way it was a plane or helicopter from its flight pattern. It stopped and moved in erratic directions in a way no human made craft could. Also it seemed to traverse vast distances across the city quickly but move like a butterfly with soft motion.

At one point it seemed very red and got long like a straight line with a hook on one end. There seemed to be 3 bright points, one at each end and one in the middle. Im interested if anyone else saw this.

My best guess is that it was over gateway/coburg area, possibly closer to downtown eugene. At one point it almost landed.

There were no noticable lights on the object, rather it seemed to completely glow and be made of light itself.
