Red and green beams of light coming from a central bright (headlight appearing) object moving erratically in night sky.

I was lying in bed looking out my sky window at the stars. I noticed one in particular that had a bright white light like headlights with what appeared to be red and green beams coming out of it. They looked like spotlights. It was also a little cloudy that day but had cleared up. The object moved erratically and hovered. I could see what I thought were sparks coming out of it as it moved or jutted around. It moved slowly like a helicopter but was too high in the sky to be a plane or helicopter. My husband also saw it and thought it was a star until he could see the colors of red and green. It did not twinkle like a star. It moved very slow and all of a sudden would jutt left or right. I had been home most of the evening and my husband had come home a little later from work. I thought about getting my video camera but it was late and my daughter was asleep. Did not want to wake her.

((NUFORC Note: If the witness was looking to the south, she may have been looking at the star, "Sirius," which is very bright, and quite colorful. PD))
