color changing spherical object, moving slowly over the night horizon

I noticed a spherical light just over the horizon and told my friend to look at it, so he did. At first I thought the object was Mars, but it was fluctuating in different colors, though it stayed mostly red. We drove closer to the object and as we did, it seemed to move further away. As we got closer, i noticed that it was changing between red, blue, orange, yellow, and green colors, almost as if the colors were moving around it. We went back to my friends house which was only a few blocks away(we were at the outskirts of town) and got a pair of binoculars, i told him to hurry for fear of the object leaving. After we got the binoculars, we drove back to our spot and i turned off my car. My friend had trouble finding the object, so I took the binoculars and watched the object through the binoculars. As i did, I could see the object clearly. It was fluctuating like before, but as i watched it started to fade out. Then it came back, the colors more intense, and it started blinking. It did this one more time and then moved slowly across the sky, eventualy disapearing under the horizon.
