Thanks for posting your sighting.
To help identify what you saw, it would be helpful if (as well as the obvious step of taking photos / a video) you could give the details required on
the UFO reporting forms used by the US Air Force and research groups such as BUFORA and MUFON.
Without those details, it is hard to sure what this is but:
(1) The fact that you have recently seen a "UFO" which appears sit still for some (unspecified) period each day for a at about the same time every
evening implies it is a star or (more commonly) a planet (including that notorious source of UFO reports, Venus).
(2) Stars and planets can appear to flash different colours due to atmospheric effects.
(3) As a result of autokinesis, stars and planets can appear to move in strange patterns.
If you could supply more precise details which any reasonably good UFO reporting form seeks to extract (e.g. duration, how the object disappears,
angular size, angular movement), it would be possible to use software such as Stellarium to confirm or eliminate a star or (more likely) planet.
