I was outside smoking a cigarette on my front porch looking up at the constellation Orion facing SSW. This pulsating multi-colored orb was blipping in and out of existance, changing to multiple shapes and colors, mostly stationary, but slowly moving, most likely only seeming to move due to the rotation of the earth. Geometric octogonal shape, I took video.I notice this object and others like it frequently in the sky here in Southern Illinois/Western Kentucky.I thought the object was not a planet or a star, upon zooming in x700 it was obviously not a star or planet. I was amazed at the object, and wondered if it were a secret craft or UFO from somewhere else.I didn't loose sight, but chose to go inside after an hour. Every once and a while I checked and it was still there for a few hours at least. I see these a lot lately. Sometimes they move across the sky very slowly.
