Short Description of UFO Event: Noticed bright column of sparkling light. Not moving. Seemed to be glistening in sun. Huge

Detailed Description of the UFO Event:
Was sitting on back deck at 715pm. Noticed a light in sky to east not moving. Was neither star or airplane. Through binoculars appeared to be a huge upright column of lights in the distance 35 degrees above horizon. Stationary and hovered then drifted extremely slowly to the south east after 30 minutes.  Took video on phone attached. Neighbors and wife saw it. I thought maybe it was a weather balloon glistening in the sun but it didn’t move at all for a long time.  When viewed through binoculars it looked light a huge tall sparkler.  Never saw anything like it before.  Sky was clear and no clouds in sky. Eventually it disappeared in the distance.
