Four Teenagers Site UFO on Country Road near Rayville, Missouri in 1966.

I received a call from a friend living in Rayville, Mo about 7 p.m. at night. He said he and his girlfriend saw a UFO flying in the direction of my house and told me to run outside to see if I could see anything. I did and looked all around; saw nothing. He was extremely excited and wanted to know if we would pick them up and go out driving to look for this thing. Ok, we did. Drove back in the direction of where he thought it went. Found a side gravel road where it was dark and sat there looking up at the sky. It was very eerie; a very quiet, dark country road. We sat there watching the sky. I was on the passenger seat in front, my boyfriend on my left on driver's side; the other 2 in the back seat. He said to look for a bright star-like object. After approx. 20 minutes waiting. I saw a bright object which I was fixated on. The next instant it appeared directly near us in the sky; above the treetops toward the backside of the car. I yelled to look and all of us stared at it. It was a huge saucer-like object with red light blinking on and off around it. After a few minutes it disappeared so fast we couldn't tell which direction it went. It was so unreal. But the 4 of us saw it.
