Flashing Lights, Changing colors, Amherst

At approximately 2:30am my friend and I noticed several bright green lights flash outside of her window. Looking like they came from the sky. We briefly ignored the bright green flashes assuming they were just a weird tint/minds playing tricks on us about lightning. Afterwards, we noticed several red flashes as well (each flash lasting in about 6 or 8 second periods). We went outside to check, and asked several people if they saw the lights, and they saw them as well, and the lights changed to a bright yellow, and seemed to originate past the W.E. dubois library at center of campus. It was consistent flashing. I asked if maybe they were fireworks, but it was raining, and it was flashing too much to be a fireworks show. And a firework at 2:30 in the morning makes no sense.
