Saw strange light coming toward my car,turned off onto an adjoining road to intercept it.Object went right over me as I watched for 15 sec.

My ex-wife and I went out to eat that night and then went to my mother's house to visit. We left,and upon returning home my ex-wife told me that she had left her purse at either the resturant or my mothers. I went to both,and as you leave my mother's old neihborhood you go down a high hill. As i was going down this hill,I noticed a strange light,non-blinking and shining brightly. I stopped the car on the hill and got out to look at it. There were no other cars on the road at the time,and this light did a righthand turn from it's original trajectory and began coming towards me. I was very curious at this point,and looked around to see if anyone else was seeing this. I then saw another car about to come around a bend in the road about an eighth of a mile down the hill and when I looked up at this light I saw it change back to it's original course,taking a left hand turn. I've lived here all my life,and I was pretty sure I could catch up with this object,so I jumped back in the car and took off. I turned off on (I think it was called Cliffside drive or Rivercliff drive) an adjoining road and drove like crazy to see if I could catch this thing. That's when I came around a bend in the road,and to my amazement this huge rectangular/cigar-like thing was slowly moving over a pasture to the right of the road.It had begun drizzling by this time and I got out of the car and just stood there looking at it. I looked at it for about 10-15 seconds (it felt like a lifetime though) and then I got this unbelievable feeling that I was going to be in trouble for looking at this thing. I got so scared in fact that I jumped in the car and was driving away at a fast speed,crying before I knew what was going on. I remember looking at it through my rear-view mirror once just to make sure it was real and then I went home and cried for about an hour and a half while my ex-wife tried to drag it out of me what I saw.
