Sighting Details

First saw directly behind my home over tree. i thought Venus looks weird then noticed Venus was more toward the west, and this object was due south. it had what looked like a strip of lights which changed colors. blue, green, white or yellow and red. it was still for a min or so the began moving higher. then it abruptly turned left and moved across the sky before coming to a stop in the western sky. i heard no noise. it stayed in the western sky for a while. still the lights looked like a strip, kind of pulsating and changing colors in what seemed a random order to me. finally it turned all red or red/orange and looked like a ball then disappeared. i tried to get better pictures but my phones camera stopped working. very weird. have no idea what it was.
