It sounds very much like a bright planet or star 'scintillating' due to 
atmospheric turbulence.  Where there any bright planets/stars in the vicinity? 
Mars is at opposition at the moment, and sounds like a good candidate.  It may 
also have been an effect due to a atmospheric temperature inversion-I have seen 
this condition used quite reasonably to explain quite a few 'UFO' sightings in
