Bright Light – Cresta

Report:
My wife first noticed an very bright light in the sky which appeared low in the sky and to me could have been the light one would associate with the flame from a hot air balloon. Very bright as a subsequent photo taken by myself will show. This was on the evening of 14th December at about 20h40. We reside in Cresta and the object would have been in the north eastern sky. My wife noticed the object moving back and forth in different directions and then slowly moved further way from where she was standing. She called me and I too was able to view the object high in the sky. Moving slowly in a northerly direction. At times the light would disappear completely but not because of cloud cover as I was still, when this occurred able to see a dark round shape where the light had been. This happened repeatedly over period of five to ten minutes after which the object (now in darkness) slowly moved away and disappeared below the tree line. I took a photograph which merely shows a pinpoint light in an otherwise pitch dark clouded sky. However, on zooming in on my phone the light becomes a multicoloured elongated cigar shape. Unfortunately this zoomed image is only visible on my phone and when I forward the image elsewhere one does not get the same perspective. Please see below:
