Sighting Details

I was stargazing in my yard last evening when I noticed a strange object appear over a tree line 280 degrees to the west.As the object was too far away to see with a camera I used my telescope to get a better view of it. thinking it a star at first I stared for a few seconds until I noticed it began to move slowly up and down past the tree line as it continued west to 290 degrees, and descended. the object in question, when viewed from my telescope was multi-colored. it would change from blue to red to green to white in a split second. it repeated these patterns as it went about its business. the whole ordeal lasted 7 mins
