Color Changing Light Over Sant Clarita Valley

My mother and I were driving home on the freeway when I noticed a very bright green light that appeared to be floating about 1,000-1,500 feet above the wash next to the freeway. The movement pattern of the light was akin to the way a balloon moves through the air, floating with mild changes in altitude. The light then changed from green to bright violet blue at which point it became markedly brighter and appeared to grow in size by about 50 percent. It then shrunk back to it’s normal size then changed colors again to red and then to white and back to green. The whole time the light was moving away from us and we lost sight of it as we exited to freeway. However as we turned of the main road down our street we saw the light which had changed back to violet blue over the trees. As we went down the hill to our house we lost sight of the light and did not see it again even though we went back up to the main road to see if it could be seen from there. My ! mother and I had both independently witnessed similar lights on separate occasions during the week or so proceeding this sighting.
