a big, very bright light traveling close to the ground very fast, w/a spinning red & white light also, as it flew away, it looked like a flat circular object.

we were going down highway 5, heading southwest at 9:47 pm on april 10, 1999. we were inbetween hartford & pleasantville, & we had been watching this bright light in the sky. we at first thought it was a tower, but it was too high up & much too bright. as it got closer, we thought it might be a plane, but it was flying too close to the ground, & the light was much too bright to be any sort of plane. then as it flew past us, we saw other flashing lights that were red and white. then after it had gone behind us, it looked like a flying saucer, w/white lights around the base, & the red lights in the center of the base. it seemed to go higher in the air, & within seconds it was gone.
