Blue white illuminated sphere with smaller spheres orbiting object

I am sending this report in response to a recent sighting in Pennsylvania. The report stated that the object looked like a star with another light going around it, the report is from Chester, PA, on 2/15/2014.

This seems very similar to an object I have seen off and on over Philadelphia for many years. I have shown this to others and have looked at it through binoculars, the object seems very stationary and does not move out of view from the sight of the binoculars as planets and other objects do.

I would describe it as a bright blue white object with lights spinning around it. The smaller lights I would say are ¼ the size of the central object and can be red, blue and yellow and spin rather quickly around the center object in multiple directions. The object also can seem larger or smaller and appear in different parts of the sky. The object does not seem to move as a planet does or any other object I have ever looked at in the sky. We have many helicopters and planes over Philadelphia and the object does not move the same way as them either. The object I would say is very still and at times moves but not when I am looking at it.

I have an interest in sky watching and have tracked planets across the sky and they move fairly quick past your view in a telescope or binoculars this object does not have any of those characteristics. I have been seeing this since the late 80's and have seen it last year at times.
