A large object came across a field, hovered directly overhead at about 150', then played "cat and mouse" games with me for about 45 minutes

Location: East Corinth, Maine Occurred: 7/26/92 Time: 11:30pm I was just getting home from working the 3-11 shift at a local hospital. As I was turning into my driveway I noticed 2 bright lights over the field a couple of hundred yards away, at first I thought it was a low flying airplane, but as I watched I realized it was much to close and low to be an airplane, also there was no sound. I walked down to the end of the driveway, as I stood there the lights started coming closer, very slowly the object came towards me until it hovered motionless about 100 feet directly above me. I would approximate it to be about 100 feet long, not quite as wide as it was long, I suppose "cigar" shape would be close. The underside was very black, it was difficult to make out the outline, there was a deep red light off center on the underside, and bluish-white lights shining outward from each end and the sides. There was a low pitch humming like sound, no down draft that I could feel coming from it. As I looked around and realized there was no one else around, a panic came on me, I ran up the driveway and crouched down behind my car, (this seems almost funny to me now) as I looked back at the craft it began to move slowly off down the road. I ran back down the driveway to see where it was going, it stopped and hovered just above the tree tops about 60 yards away, it slowly rotated and made a high mechanical whining noise, it's difficult to describe because I have never heard anything like it. It then began to move off towards the main road. Where I got the nerve, I'll never know, but I got in the car and headed after it. When I reached the main road the craft was just on the other side of the street, right at tree top level, I got out of the car and stood on the hood of it and just starred at this thing, it was close enough that I could have hit it with a rock. From this angle I could see three lights blinking along the craft, one green, red, and a blue one, also a row of dim lit lights that looked to be windows. As I stood there for about a minute it began to slowly move away along t! he road heading south, I followed along at about 60 mph as this craft flew along just above the trees along side of the road, after about a mile I lost sight of it. Three miles from home I pulled into the parking lot of a closed store and got out to look out aver a big valley, as I stood there it came out across the valley in a big arc and went out of sight. At this point I was very wound up and excited so I headed home to call some one about this. As I was driving home, I saw it again in the rear view mirror, I stopped and got out of the car and watched it again fly off out of sight. After I got home and was getting out of the car it came over the tree line at a fair distance away and flew off out of sight. I sat out on the deck for about an hour but did not see it again that night. The time from when I first saw it until I got home was about 45 minutes. A strange thing was that while this was going on there where no cars on the road, after it was over the were quite a few. I made several phone calls over the next several days, but no one could tell me anything, some people laughed, the was some ridicule from others, and some people said they believed and a few even shared sighting of there own. In closing I'd just like to say that this is absolutely a true story and the strangest thing that I have ever experienced, it seemed as if this craft were playing some cat and mouse game with me.
