I only chime in as it seems no one has mentioned the program Stellarium. OP I find it very helpful in keeping track of which stars are in the skies at any given time, anywhere in the world, letting one confirm or disprove whether ones sighting is that of a star or not.
Turning on the Constellation lines ( Shortcut C key ) provides a very good guide as well.

The air has been cold and moist the past few mornings ( dew on the cars etc ), with that said, any light in the air is going to have a shimmer or twinkle effect, especially if it is medium low to medium high on the horizon because of the amount of atmosphere that the light is shining through.
Twinkling stars always catch our attention. People will often report a bright object flashing or pulsating in the different colors and swear it’s a UFO. When I ask the time and location of their sighting, it almost always turns out to be a bright star like Sirius, Capella or Arcturus seen near the horizon.
My name is Bob King and I work at the Duluth News Tribune in Duluth, Minn. as a photographer and photo editor. I'm also an amateur astronomer and have been keen on the sky since age 11. My modest credentials include membership in the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO) where I'm a regular contributor, International Meteorite Collectors Assn. and Arrowhead Astronomical Society. I also teach community education astronomy classes at our local planetarium.

More than likely people will tell you it is Venus, like the following video, but who knows what it is?
LOL, I guess Venus decided to change colors this morning. But I can tell you it was not Venus, I'm not that blind or stupid you know.

Morning, Was wondering if any update was coming?
Did OP get a chance to head back out to same spot to see if the object returned?
