Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Craft with bright flashing color-changing lights

We were coming down Mt. Lemmon, from Ski Valley, near the upper section of the road repairs section, when in front of us we saw an object with bright flashing lights. This lights where making sort of a "horizontal 8" movement, changing from white to pink, blue and red. The object was moving NE - SW towards the city of Tucson (left to right from our perspective at a low altitude. The flashing lights might make someone believe it to be an airplane, but the airplanes I've seen have stationery lights in the front, bottom or tips of their wings. This looked as if the bottom of the craft had many lights and different colors. We continued moving and didn't see if the craft kept on moving or landed or changed directions. I recall 2 more cars on the road down that evening, and we encountered other cars going up the road; maybe someone else saw something. We do not believe this to be an airplane.
