I just Filmed a Moving and Glowing "Orb" of energy on videotape

Yesterday evening my brother(who lives about 12 miles away) called me and said he was looking at a UFO,I laughed and said "really?"(I really don`t buy into this sorta thing).Anyway low and behold I go to my window and look and there is what looks to be a really bright star in the southern sky,upon closer look it was glowing reds,blues,greens and looked to be some sort of star or fireball except IT MOVED.I then took out my camcorder and started taping it.I taped it moving (in slow zig-zags,angles and twice it shot from one place to another and stopped on a dime,the speed during these "shooting times" was like a meteors speed). I zoomed in (320x digital zoom) a few times and what I saw(and recorded) was a yellowish nucleous with some sort of colored energy bands or radiation coming from it,on both the left and right sides there is something shaped half circular and is pitch black and has no color yet the radiant color spills all around the orb except in these spots.I have the tape and I don`t know the first thing about what to do with it.Anyway, get back at me people,I`m flippin my lid trying rationalize this.

((NUFORC Note: Report is reminiscent of twinkling star, or Jupiter, which is in that area of the sky at present. PD))
