Large Pulsating Colorful Light over Eastern Manatee County

I was on my way to work traveling East on rt64 around 6:30 am Dec 23rd. As I drove under Interstate 75 I noticed a very large Brite shimmering light to the east, slightly southeast. As I approached my turn on Lena rd I realized this object was changing colors rapidly from red to blue to green to yellow and pulsating. It was hovering like a helicopter but much too large. I drive a jeep and had the top off so had a very good view of this object. I turned onto Lena rd and pulled off the west side to observe the object. It stopped pulsating and began to change from one solid color to the next. It was silent and appeared to expand in size as I watched it for appx 3 minutes. A fog bank came off the dairy farm and put a stop to my view of this object. I started my jeep back up and began to head south on Lena rd hoping to get past the fog to view object again, When The sky lit up with a white flash. Object was gone when I waa in a spot where I would be able to see i! t again. Anyone (100's of cars/people)traveling on I75 or East on rt64 had too see this. It was HUGE!!! I told no one of this. 0331exmc
