brilliant pink light observed then emitted sparks then vanished

At 6:58pm on Oct. 20th I was driving eastbound on Heege Rd. 1/2 mile east of Gravois Rd. I looked north, when I observed a brilliant pink light which was at the very top of my drivers side window. I had to put my head up against the window which was appox. 4 inches down to observe this light. The color of this pink light startled me. With no reference point (it was dark) it was hard to estimate the size and the height of this light in the air. I slowed my truck down from 35mph to about 5mph to stop and get out and take a closer look. As I justed about stopped, the pink light emitted sparks then disappeared. The pink circular light was moving east to west almost directly above me, no sound was emitted either. This lasted 6-8 seconds.
