I watched the video.
So I have a few questions.
What was the date?
What time of day was it?
when you say 80 degrees, do you mean in elevation (almost straight up?) Or in azimuth (an easterly direction).

here are some stills i captured for you
As you know, i've seen it before and i found it really intriguing.
Ther's alot of colors and shape shifting there. I hope here there's someone here who has already seen something of similar....
Oke thnx bicyclerepair man. Thats a good explanation. And most likely the best expanation. I'v readed in the parma article that your an amature astronomer. And thats also a question to the astronomer societys because they most likely know the planets possition at best. Never knew that planets could pulsating such a bright aray of colours.

Blinking and pulsating stars are not supernova, that would be all over the news! It's common for a very bright star (Sirius) or a planet (Venus, Jupiter) to appear like its pulsating due to atmospheric disturbances, especially when it's not in the zenith (90° above your head) but located more to the horizon, like you can see in your video compared to the streetlantern. The light of the star has to travel through much more atmospheric layers from a wider angle when it appears above the horizon, and as such ancounters more disturbances whichwill divert the light which gives it a blinking or birght/less bright effect. The same with the colors.
Taken from a nightsky guide of March the 22nd 2007 directly:
"Venus remains bright in the western sky after sunset. It shines at magnitude -3.8." stargazing.suite101.com...
So what you saw should have been Venus, right? Or Jupiter with a magnitude of -2, Saturn or maybe Regulus (bightest star of the Lion). I see all the times blinking stars standing out of the other stars but these are not ufo's, just planets and very bright stars (Sirius, Regulus, Arcturus, Vega, Deneb etcetera)
