Stars appear to blink because of earth's atmosphere...

Any small light source such as a star or planet can appear to flicker different colours due to atmospheric refraction.
When light enters the atmosphere at an angle, the atmosphere acts like a prism - and because the air is constantly moving, you see constantly changing colours.

Depending how steady (or unsteady) the atmosphere is, this flickering will occur to varying degrees of intensity.
Astronomers refer to this quality of the air as the 'seeing'.
Good 'seeing' = steady
Bad 'seeing' = unsteady

If the object was South East after sunset, and bright, recently - most likely it's Jupiter.
