Huge Bright Star in the Eastern Sky
It can't be Venus because Venus is clearly the third brightest object in the sky but located in the Western Sky.
Spica might be a blue twinkling star in the eastern sky.
Please get your directions straight east is east and west is west. There's also something bright in the South/West, but don't know yet what it is.

Sorry I am horrible with direction but I am seeing a very bright star that is twinkling not an ordinary twinkle it is flashing colors, green, blue, yellow, and a red. I am a little freaked by it. If you go outside and pay close attention you will see that most of the stars are twinkling tonight. I am trying to get pictures or video but cannot get a picture, my camera is only recording black.

 Quoting: Nostalgic Rain

Any bright star will do this, especially when it's low in the sky.
When looking out of our atmosphere at a shallow angle, you're looking through about 5 or 6 times as much constantly-moving air, as you are when looking straight up.
You get an effect a bit like a prism - the colours are split by refraction - and because the air is constantly moving, the level of refraction is constantly changing... hence the different colours.

What time of night.....?

In the East after it gets dark, it's likely Arcturus - and probably Sirius to the SE.

Time of night can make a difference though - 10pm onwards Saturn and Spica are side by side to the SE

Venus is not a planet. Here is proof on Space Weather today. [link to spaceweather.com] This is a plasma light craft.

as to the east, I see two blue twinklers, peeking over a cloud, east of the full moon. One larger than the other. I am not going to load my sky program on my other computer tonight though. But you can be pretty sure, that if someone took a nice pic of the larger one, like on spaceweather of "Venus" that it would look similar to that.

This is not Mars by the way, wrong color. Not star ship sirius either, its way past center. Now this image is of STAR SHIP Sirius. :Astromut sirius: taken by astromut with GLP telescope. now compare that to the space weather image of "Venus". Hopefully bells will ring.

You're crazy.

Both pictures look similar because they are small bright objects.
Both are showing Airey disks and diffraction spikes.

Please learn something about optics before spouting horseshit.

Pretty sure this is Arcturus because it is low on the northwest horizon around 10 p.m. Capella appears low in the northeast around the same time, while Sirius, the brightest of all stars, emerges in the southeast around 3 a.m..

Venus is in the west with a bright, big steady shine.
Mars is reddish and a bit murkey.
Betelgeuse is my personal favorite golden red just above to the left of 3 stars orion's belt.

I think it was Northwest but I have just never seen it before. I do go out and look at the stars very often. I have never seen one do this before. It was beautiful, flashing green, blue, yellow, then red. The colors were actually going in a pattern. I watched for a very long time. Most of the stars were twinkling tonight, was a lovely sky to look at this evening.

Maybe if you gave better information than "big bright thing kind of east" we could figure it out. Which constellation is it in? Is it close to any other stars or planets?

How about direction (even a compass would do) and height above horizon (your fist at arms length is about 10 degrees).

It's probably Sirius, as that gets reported most often as "something weird" because it's very bright and flashes lots of colours close to the horizon.

Or get a copy of Stellarium, and figure out for yourself what it is...
