Riverview/Brandon FL, 1 strange light that changed direction and color from white to red and green

On 31 Oct 2013 at approximately 20:17 hours in Riverview, FL, while handing out candy with my wife and 3 year old daughter, I witnessed what I thought to be a fly over of the International Space Station again (it passed over our area a couple of days ago). It was a bright light moving from Northwest to Southeast just as fast as the space station did but then it started to slow down, stop, change from a bright white to a red and green light, back to dim white, slowly move east, then slowly move north again. I thought this to be extremely odd and that’s when I called my wife over to witness it with me. We stood at the end of our driveway looking north and watched it change color and patterns a couple of times. I asked my wife to film it with her Samsung Galaxy S III phone but because of the distance and with the light coming from my house (to inform trick-or-treater’s that we are handing out candy) the strange light in the sky didn’t show up on her phone. At approximately 20:20 is when my next door neighbor came out from her house to see if there were any more kids going to stop by. I asked her to come out to the end of her driveway with us to see if she knew what it was. She thought it was odd as well but didn’t want to think too much about it. We stood at the end of her driveway for about a minute and that’s when the strange light moved slowly north and behind some thin clouds moving in. Soon after that, the strange light moved past the horizon of our home and out of view.

My wife and I had hoped that it would have been seen by other parents out with their kids during this night and perhaps it would have been reported to a local media station, but after thinking about it, who really wants to report anything like this on Halloween? My thought process was to report it on this website in hopes it would produce some intelligent feedback.

Kinda odd, but don’t want to think about it too much. Would like to see if there is any feedback though.
