Red and green twinkling star in the western sky?

For the last month I’ve noticed this star relatively low on the western horizon early in the evening. I am in California. Any idea what this might be?

    It could be a space station.  In some places you are able to see them.  i would want to say that it is a plane or something, but those wouldn’t be there repeatedly. Do you live by mountains?  Are you sure its not something that has been built up high?

    If not I would say it is probably a space station.

      I’ve actually seen it from both central and southern California. In the mountains and the beach. It definitely is not moving though.

      Let me know if you see it too! I was on Venice beach when I saw it most recently. Check out the western sky about 30-60 minutes after sundown. It is one of the lowest “stars” on the horizon. To orient you– it is over the water (just a little ways south of the Malibu coastline in the sky).
