We saw a circular flashing object in the eastern sky slowly descending.

At 2320, my wife and I was outside in the backyard having a smoke just before bedtime. All in a sudden, my wife noticed a flashing object in the eastern sky. She quickly grabbed our bonoculars to see what it was. After she looked at the object, we observed a circular rotating object with flashing red, blue, green, yellow, and white lights slowly descending the horizon. After about 40 minutes, we know the object was lower from the original location we first seen it. I then quickly booted up our computer to report this unusual sighting. Update 10 Aug/0023: My wife just came back in the house and said it slowly disappeared from the horizon.
