coloured moving lights over washington

in 2002 we had a holiday in cuba, 10th - 24 july, on the way home i saw something that will stay with me until the day i die, the flight path home took us along the eastern side of the usa, i had a window seat and whil over land i like to look out at the scene below, as we were passing over washington i looked out of the airplane window and saw 'lights' that i assumed was maybe lightening but the movements of these lights made me realise it was something more, i tried to show my husband but as i pointed out where the lights were they would suddenly 'jump' moving at great speed and he would miss them, fascinated i watched for as long as i could which was only a few minutes as the plane was moving away from them. the lights were coloured, blue, orange, red, violet, it seemed as though i was watching something spinning and the colour changed as the object turned, it would be in one place, revolving for a few seconds and then it would be gone only to reappear in a different part of the sky, there was more than one object and there seemed to be a pattern to the movement, it was unlike anything i had ever seen befor, i knew i would see something about these lights in the paper and sure enough a couple of days later there was a report in the daily mail about the u.f.o over washington
