Bright ball of light East of Independence Mo.

I live in independence and was looking west towards KC which this bright star light sphere seemed to be South of KC. It was brighter than all the stars showing and even brighter than Venus which was to the lower right. It seemed to have a beam of light shooting out of it like a rotating light house which slowly came down as it was turning. As the beam of light rotated around and slowly came down to my angle it was slowing in rotation and seemed to stop... pointing at me as if it knew i was looking at it. It was very far away so i wasn't too concerned.

I had my dogs with me and they started acting excited and it was time to go anyways. I got home and went in looking through the window and it seemed to have changed position.

I then got onto my computer and looked up an astronomy program and found that it could have been the star Aldebaran which sort of made me feel better but I've never seen a star do this. I recall something from my childhood which ! makes me feel leery of these type of strange occurrences.
