Pulsing, shape-shifting UFO in Southern Indiana

I live in Southern Indiana, near Louisville, Kentucky. On Saturday, August 28, 2010, at approximately 6:00 a.m., I observed a very bright, odd-looking “light” in the eastern sky near Orion’s belt. It was brighter and larger than anything else in the sky.

The light would glow bright and produce a huge halo around itself, then it would dim, in a very slow pulse. The light, when glowing bright, formed elongated spikes of light above and below the main part of the light. I got my binoculars to observe the light closer. With the binoculars, I could see in the center of the light three colored orbs: red, blue, green, positioned in a triangle to each other. In succession, each orb would glow bright, then dim (not flashing).

I observed the light until the dawn made it impossible. During the entire time I watched the light it did not move its location in the sky; neither vertical nor horizontal.

I attempted to observe the light the next morning at the exact same time and place but it was no longer there.
