A late night experience of a rotating ball with changing colors, and a aura

It was a strange month that year, My wife was pregnant with our second son. I remember a couple of days before seeing the object, I had trouble sleeping, and was having wierd dreams. In my back yard, we have a drainage Ditch,and behind the ditch at that time, we had several thousand acres of farm land. My backyard faces the West, and beyond the farm land runs the highway enter- ing Brownsville,from North to South. I remember that a couple of nights before, while being outside at night, I would see a ball of white light on the other side of the ditch. I could recall seeing the light barely over the brush along the ditch, but for some strange reason I didn't think about it. I remember seeing it several times, and it did stand out, but for some reason I didn't check it out. But then on that night, I Decided to take my dog,(a Great Dane) for a walk, I would walk her probably every other night that month, late at night. It was a cool night, and it was clear skies, I walked to the back yard, when again I saw this light, It apeared to be moving slowly up and down. This time I became aware of how this light was strange, and out of place. The light at that moment looked like a street light, I went to the ditch for a better look, as I got closer, I could not see it, because of the brush. The Ditch on the other side is higher than the side I was standing on, so I was trying to figure out how I could get a better view. As I stood there, this bright light shot up from where I had seen the light, It was the size of a golf ball at arms lenth,this is the best I could describe it. It seemed to be rotating, and changing colors, It was not very bright, as bright as a 40 watt light bulb. You could see like vapor, like when you look at gasoline, is the best way I could describe it, you could see the colors change as it rotated, I can't remember though which way it was rotating(sorry), but it was rotating horizontally. My dog also noticed it, she was scared but did not bark, She had her tail between her legs. I stood there for about 15 seconds, trying to figure out what it was, but then I became scared, And I ran inside the house thru the front door, with the dog. I remember telling my self, that no one was going to believe me about what I saw, So I ran into the bedroom and woke my wife up, I dragged her outside thru the sliding door going to my back yard. My wife didn't know what was going on, I guess I was pretty excited, but she saw it also, but this time, it was starting to move to the Northwest slowly. It seemed to be shrinking in size, It got to the size of a pea at arms lenth. I had built a elivated platform for my son, so I climbed it, and watched it, as it dropped behind some trees in the far distance Northwest of my home. At the time I didn't believe in ufo's, I was just a regular Joe, Didn't really give it to much thought, but now I have become a strong believer. Thank You, PS My wife was 6 months pregnant at the time
