circular object turning orange as it sped away very quickly.

i was headed north on I-65 interstate toward franklin ky. i notice a round object in front of me high in the air. the sun had just hit upon it and this is when i noticed it. i drove down the road looking for and airplane in the sky but it had already disappeared. this is not my first encountered with a ufo. in 1968 while in the service and stationed in blytheville arkansas i saw a round object in the sky while waiting for a ferry boat crossing the mississippi river. it looked like a star at first and i looked at the object while i was on the boat and noticed it went below the treeline and i couldn't see it andy more until i got of the boat about 2 miles and it came upon me. it followed me for 5 or 10 minutes. then it started to getting real close perhaps 75 yards. i had spotlights on my car and started shining it on the object. i stopped my car and turned off the motored to see if i could hear anything but there was no noise. i kept my spotlight on it and would blink it three times and on the third time it would light up the entire area below it. after 2or 3 minutes it moved and away in a quick way turning and orange color. it disappeared until i turned off the interstate and was on the bridge of the highway when it dove straight at me. that is when it scared me because it was headed toward and dove down toward the bridge but not under it but swarved and headed back out to space turning this orange color again. i went to the air base and gave my account to someone on the phone and that was it .
