triangle with lights seen moving south along us 41 sarasota

While driving down US 41 not far from our home my wife and I notice an interesting set of lights in a triangular shape. On one corner was a red light that blinked at longer intervals than the other two white lights at the other corners. The white lights blinked back and forth quickly and the the blinked once every few times the white ones alternated. A green light that bursted three blinks at a time was located between the white lights along that side of the triangle.

Upon first seeing the craft it was stationary. It moved the first time real quickly from its sitting position like it had no need to build thrust with the air like a hovering helicopter would have to do. It only moved a short distance and stopped again. I had meanwhile called my cousin to see if he could see it but his house was too far away to view the object probably due to the object not being high enough in the air and clouds. I also had pulled over into a parking lot so I could remain seeing it as long as possible.

When I pulled over it moved slowly but at a decent rate southward. My wife and eye watched it for another minute or so as it moved behind trees in the distance. We didn't want to actually believe we saw that but the fact is we did and I felt it needed reported. Others had to have seen the object for sure because many people were out and about but I figured not that many people care enough to report these things.
