Blinking white, green, red light over Allendale Neighborhood St. Petesburg, FL

I was out walking my dog, Khloe in the alley and it was a cold crisp night. Weíd been outside for about 5 minutes and I was looking at Mars and then looking at Orion when something caught my eye. It was a blinking strobe-like light like the kind you see on airplanes that are very high in the sky. I thought to myself, this is a very high flying airplane, so I started watching it. It was about 70 degrees up and approximately due east and to the left of Orion but higher. It was headed towards me and I estimated it to be very high (a few miles high Ė like as high as an airplane that is at cruising altitude). Then I noticed that the white light was blinking three times, then off for a Ĺ second then the light was green and again blinking three times and then off and then a solid red light for about one second. I realized that this was the same pattern each time repeating I believe five times. I knew now it wasnít an airplane because the lights just donít t! urn colors like that Ė usually you see blinking white lights with a green and red light for each wing. Now, Iím thinking itís a helicopter maybe as the police helicopter is usually flying around the area but not way up in the sky like this. Iíve now been observing this for about a minute. It seemed to stop now and was about 75 degrees up. Thatís when it freaked me out. The last time it went through the white, green and then red on sequence, as the light was still red, it suddenly-and to my surprise-shot off to the right and down at about a 120 degree angle at an impossible speed for an airplane or anything else for that matter. It was now behind the trees that are off to the right and I could not see it. I moved to the right and left about 20 paces to get a clear view and it was simply gone. Also about this time, my dog started barking very loudly like she would if there was someone at the door. Now Iím spooked and a little scared. Iím convinced what I saw was not ! something conventional like a plane or a helicopter because I ! know wha t they look like and how they maneuver in the sky. This thing darted down and over in a split second. When I saw this Ė it didnít register right away but then I realized my god Iíve just seen something very very weird.
