Full Description & Details

First noticed the object at sunset with the first stars. The object was somewhat obscured by tall trees so seemed like a street lamp but was too high to be a street lamp. The object changed to a red color from orange and flashed red and green then became orange again. I observed the object for about 45 minutes. The object did not seem to move and from where I was observing it, it would appear to have been situated over the Gweru Provincial Hospital. The size of the object was something like five street lamps put together. The object was akin to a planet in the clear night sky.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Akin to a planet.
