Bright flashing point of light

I was at my parents house and after watching a movie I went outside to have a cigarette. The sky was clear and I noticed a bright stationary point of light fairly low toward the northeast (much brighter than any visible stars). At first glance I thought it was an airplane on approach to O'Hare as the light was flickering between blue & white with a very random red flash mixed in. After a few minutes I asked my parents to verify that it was flashing and they both confirmed. We all agreed that it must have been a planet and went inside. After a lot of boring researche online, I could not find a reasonable planetary explanation. A couple of hours later it wass gone.
