Lights above the Estrella Mountains (Phoenix, AZ)

At approx. 11:30pm I notice a light, located past and above the Estrella Mountains (Phoenix, AZ). I had recently seen this object a few nights before, however due to Sky Harbor International Airport and the traffic pattern for the aircraft, I thought it was just another airplane. This object didn't seem to move when looking at it from the distance where I was, however, when looking at the object through my telescope I noticed that the object would not stay stationary. The object had Blue (Possibly Green) and Red lights, which you would believe to be the position lights on an airplane. While watching the object it would move from side to side, normally if an aircraft turns the light on the wingtips would alternate to the other side. This object did not. There wasn't (at least from what I could see) any anti-collision or strobe lights on it, just the Blue and Red. Luke Air Force Base is close to my home and other lights have been seen in the distance, South - Southwest of the airbase. I have videoed some lights in the AZ sky however I was told that these lights are flares from the Air Force. As for the lights seen, recently, I have seen it before. Again, may be just another aircraft in the Phoenix sky.
