Small object with green and red lights slowly flying and rotating near a state highway.

I was driving to work early on Wednesday morning, May 16 and had just turned north on State road 1 from US highway 40. To the east I saw lights in the sky, which I initially thought was an airplane. As my car got closer to a department of transportation building in the area I noticed a strange light formation from a small object appearing to be about 60-70 above ground level. This is only a guess as it was still fairly dark but this is the feeling I got looking at it. As I slowly drove by I noticed red and green lights. They were not pulsating or flashing. The green lights appeared in a row and the red light or lights were on the other side of the green, but were not in a row. They were either a circular cluster or just one large, round light. I couldn't see the body of the craft but it moved in diagonal and irregular patterns very slowly and without sound. It also rotated slowly as it traveled. I wish I had stopped and took more time to look at it but it seemed to happen so fast I couldn't process what I was seeing and thought maybe someone from the transportation department was using some kind of radio controlled flying vehicle. When I arrived at work I spoke about it with other coworkers who live in the area and 4 or 5 others confirmed what I saw and they were just as perplexed as I was.

This just happened this morning and I'm hoping to talk to more people around town this week to see if anybody else experienced this or knows of an explanation as to what this was. If I obtain any new information or insight regarding this I will post a follow up statement.
