Large Bus sized cloud - emanating several beautiful colors from center but not making it past outer edge of the cloud 2 minute sighting

My sighting was a night of a perfectly clear night, except one small cloud (size of a city bus). This cloud was about as high as a high rise, floating about 20 M.P.H. or so. Lights of several colors (beautiful reds, greens, blues and others) were emanating from center but not leaving the outer edge of the cloud. After viewing it for over a minute (over my left shoulder), I took my eyes off of it to execute a freeway change (I was traveling North on Loop 610 on West side of Houston, fixing to exit and travel South on Hwy 59) 30 sec. or so I resumed to observe it. The cloud was nowhere to be seen! I was riding a motorcycle at the time and had 360 degree view of my surroundings. I later saw an interview with the actor "Sinbad". He stated that when he was a boy, he saw the same thing over a neighbors house hovering...Him being 35 yrs old or more at the time and me seeing mine within the last year(at the time) I figure this model hasn't changed for approx. 30 years! Thinking back, it may have been ours, a balloon with a projection of a cloud made around it (explaining the lights I saw). But it was a brightly moonlit night (I could tell that it was only cloud in area). How did it leave area so fast, there was no sign of it? Did we have that technology 30 years previous and the public still has been yet to have been enlightened? Please send me any information of this type of craft...mine and Sinbad's are the only two that I know of. It is driving me crazy.
