Strange Lights over Bartow, FL

While driving east on State Road 60, just as we were approaching the city of Bartow, my wife and I observed a bright light directly in front of us. I cannot say what the distance was from our location. As we watched the bright light, it began to descend and suddenly sepparated into 2 separate lights.

At first I thought that it was a firework of some sort but quickly realized that it was much too high in the sky. Almost immediately after the 2 descending lights were no longer visible, we spotted another light slowly growing brighter and brighter. About 10 seconds later there was another light and then another and then another. We saw a total of 6 lights maximum at one time. Then it seemd as if they were taking turns "turning their lights on and off" because we saw 6 of them, then 4, then 2, then 3 etc, etc. until finally approx after 3 or 4 minutes total, there was nothing.
