Star like object that changed colours and seemed to have a beaming light underneath

Just a quick report on what I believe was a UFO sighting on Friday 3rd March at 3am, Gordon, Canberra ACT Australia.

A week before my partner whom email I am using was outside on the back deck. I noticed he was gazing up into the sky and I was wondering what he was looking at. Approx 20 seconds later he turned to me and said "look, what's that". I looked towards the heavens and saw a small bright silver (metallic) object the size of a pin head moving very quickly and horizontally across the sky.

He was taken aback and yes we claimed to have seen an unidentified object. It meant more to him as it was his first ever sighting.

I however over the past 20yrs have seen several, although I was living in NZ at the time.

Several nights later on March 3rd I was working a night shift and decided to go outside for a cigarette, it was 3am and a very clear night. I was looking at the stars when I noticed a very bright but low star, it was so low it appeared out of place so I turned all the inside lights off to get a better view. On doing that I realised the object was changing colours gold/bluish and orange. I rang my partner hoping he could see it but because of the distance between us this was impossible. I watched it just hovering in the one place for several minutes and on one occasion it seemed to have disappeared only to appear just as quick. My partner rang back and I was trying to explain what I was seeing... at that very moment and although it may sound very strange I said to him that it looked as though it had a light coming from beneath (as though it was beaming something up) after 14 minutes it disappeared completely.

I have worked several shifts and have made a point of looking in that same direction at around the same time but to no avail.
