Images of neon blue lights taken outside of restaurant in Lancaster, PA

Hadn't seen anything personally while taking photos of snowfall outside of Infinito's (pizza buffet), but when I went back through my gallery this morning I saw that I had captured some peculiar lights amongst the falling snow. Appearing to travel from right to left, these neon lights didn't seem to match the color of any signage from the surrounding area, nor was it emanating from any nearby police vehicles (no cars were being used anywhere nearby for that matter). Finally, because the pictures had been taken from outside the restaurant (top of awning visible in first photo), there was no possibility of it being reflected from anything inside the restaurant.

I'm a 20 year old college student who has taken a few digital photography courses, but I've never captured anything as unusual as this. It would be something beyond my capabilities as a photographer to stage the photos using an editing program because of the snow that covers the image. I've never taken drugs/used alcohol, but I was feeling a bit disoriented (I had accidentally taken the bus a stop past mine and had to backtrack a mile and a half to my destination). I'm looking to keep my identity anonymous, so I have nothing to gain from reporting the experience, and I myself am not a believer in these sorts of things, but having a first hand experience that I can't rationalize perplexes me.

The only reason that I'm taking time to report the incident is that I feel it could be explained by someone more qualified, or else useful to the people that keep track of these strange occurrences.
