Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
We saw a bright light in the sky that ended up hovering directly above our car, was triangular, chased us before it left us alone.

My husband and I(at that time we were not married) were out taking a drive in the country on a nice night and I noticed a bright "ball" in the sky. This light was pretty far away, straight in front of us, from our vantage point just peeking over the tree tops.

At first I thought it was an airplane tower light but it seemed too bright and high. My husband asked, "What is that?" and we started to explain it away-plane, helicopter, etc.. Then it moved straight up and straight to the left and repeated this movement as if going up stairs a couple of times, until it was high in the sky, like a very bright star, in front and slightly to the left of us.

At this point we were talking to each other- is it some military helicopter or UFO or what? Also at this point we were driving on a straight road and we had slowed down considerably. Then the light dimmed from a bright white to a orangish color and began moving in a straight line directly to us. It was weird because it was very far away and we never took our eyes off it but it was right on top of us too quickly. It was like it moved very slowly and steadily yet it got to us faster than it should have.

At this point we had stopped in the middle of this road and turned off the headlights. There was no one else around. The UFO stopped and hovered directly above our car and slightly to the left about 20 ft.? above us. I'm not that great with measuring distance but it was right on top of us. It was about 4 or 5 times the size of our thunderbird turbo coupe, Triangular with rounded edges, apparently black in color and had many lights on the bottom. Because it was right on top of us we couldn't see the top but it did appear to have a "windshield" on one of the points facing the same direction we were.

It made no noise, created no wind that I could tell and even though it had lights it didn't give off light or light anything up. It was slowly turning back and forth (left and right) but not all the way around. From the time it reached us to the time my husband stuck the car in gear and went peeling down the road was probably only 30 seconds or so. I felt like an animal, we were both crying and panicing. The UFO crossed over the top of our car so that it was on the right side. To the right(out my window) was pasture and the UFO was flying at the level of my window-4 or 5 ft. off the ground (?) and seemed to be playing a game with us, it would stay along side the car, then back off and catch back up, shoot ahead and wait for us, etc.. this lasted about a minute or 2.

I was looking from it to my husband who was trying to drive and screaming at him to get away. At one point I looked back and it was gone. We made a right turn and I was looking in the sky and found it looking like a bright star again, about 1 minute after it had disappeared. We made another right turn so as it was directly in front of us, high in the sky and it just dove down into the trees at an extremely fast speed. That was it.

My husband is a plumber and I am a stay at home mom. I wished for a long time that this didn't happen. I've gotten past it now and try not to think about it too much.
