Characteristics: The object changed color
Large bright multicolored twinkling light just above western horizon

My family and I observed a large, bright whitish yellow multicolored (red, green, blue) twinkling light slightly above western horizon.

Light was too large for a star or planet. It was not consistent with any known aircraft.

It hovered in the same spot for about 7 minutes then immediately disappeared.
