Summary : Me and my friend were traveling down I-75 towards Arcadia, Fl. when we saw a very bright pulsating white light hovering in a clearing, after we passed it going 70 mph it began to follow us traveling just above the treeline, even after we went over a hill it still was behind us. It was blinking slower than an aircraft strobe light so I know that it was'nt any type of airplane, especially because there was no visible wings or fuselage. The light was so bright that it was lighting up the sky all around it. I followed for about 3 minutes and than quickly acclerated towards a small town and disappeared.
