Color changing light, randomly bobbing and circling--would have thought this was a star if I had just glanced at it for a second

I got up to use the bathroom shortly before 1 AM. I was looking at the stars through the open window, when I noticed that one of them was moving. At first I thought that I must just be so tired that my eyes were playing tricks on me. I kept watching and the light bobbed randomly in all directions, and a couple of times even moved around in a circle. The color of the light changed randomly, including white, red, orange, and yellow. At times I think I saw fainter lights shoot out from the main light that was bobbing around, but they were so faint that I'm not positive. Some of my thoughts while observing--"That's a UFO. I'm actually seeing a UFO."

I thought that if this ever happened I'd be a lot more scared. I'm really glad that thing seems so far away." I watched until the light dropped behind the trees across the street from my house. I considered getting in the car and driving to where I could get an unobstructed view but was too scared to do so by myself.
