Glowing Red-Orange-White Light Over the Adriatic, Vir, Croatia

While on vacation at our family house in the island of Vir, near Zadar, Croatia, on July 19th, 2008 (give or take a day or two), I was telling my Croatian cousins the story of a bright red-orange-white flashing light in the sky we saw in 2005 in Cuernavaca, Mexico. I have recently submitted that sighting on here as well. It was about 11pm and clear skies. All the stars were out and our house is right on the Adriatic Sea with a south-west view toward Italy.

Not even 30 seconds after telling my cousins of a red-orange-white glowing ball my wife and maybe 30 others saw in 2005 in Cuernavaca, Mexico in a clear night sky, I looked up into the sky after hearing all their disbelief and saw the same exact thing. I had just looked up over a pine tree in the front of our house and nothing was there. I looked back 5 seconds later and was astonished to see the same thing I saw in Mexico and just had told the sighting details to my cousins. We were all astounded as to the timing of this event. It just simply appeared and then slowly faded away over about a 30-second period of time. It was silent, quite high up in the sky, but couldn't say exactly how high. It was over the Adriatic Sea and did not have a reflection on the calm waters. It didn't seem to be a star, as it was much larger, brighter and was glowing and changing colors like a disco ball but flashing many many times faster.
