Seen unusual light in sky

At 22:30 on 11/24/98 I went outside on break to have a smoke and was looking around in the sky. I noticed a strange light that was changing colors and at first thought it was an aircraft taking off from Harris- burg airport. Then I noticed it wasn't moving and joked to a coworker that ET was coming to take him away. From our warehouse the light seemed to be about 20 degree's off the horizon in a east south east direction. There were 3 light colors going from blue to white to red in that order. The size of the light was about 3/4 the size of a pencil eraser at arms length. I understand that stars somtimes (twinkle) and planets do not however no other stars doing anythig odd at this time.
