cigar shape of colored lights chased and paced my car

This report is filed only because I have been able to verify 5 additional sightings in the same area. My experience began as I left a friend's house early one morning. I drove to the end of his driveway, stopping to look each way. The road, Pekin, is dark and deserted, with scattered homes and small farms on each side. As I looked to my left, a line of brightly colored lights rose above the treetops 100 yards away and stopped in mid air. There were six lights, flashing on and off similar to a moving sign, or what you might see on a tiny portion of the Goodyear blimp. They flashed red, green and white as they moved, from left to right. I rolled down my window, expecting sound, but there was none. Extending my arm out the window, and using my left index finger as a gauge, I noted that the line of lights were as long as my finger, from tip to palm, and that they were about half the thickness of the finger in diameter. Puzzled, and not really sure what I was seeing, I just turned left as I always did, going east on Pekin. As I started down the road, the lights moved to their left and crossed over the road from my right just as I passed under them. I remember looking up through my windshield to see them, then they dissapeared behind trees as I drove on. A half mile down the road, there is a stop sign for Sperry road, where I would turn right. I wondered what the blimp was doing out here so late, it's too rural for the blimp, so what was it? I was now approaching the stop sign, and that's when I saw the lights come back from my left and stoped, hovering over the road at the same altitude directly in front of me and out about 200 feet. I had the impression "it" expected me to continue through the stop sign and towards it. My hair stood on end when I realized what these lights were, and I quickly turned right and sped off as fast as I could. Looking left, I saw the lights were pacing my car at the same speed, at which point I became very frightened, shouting "Not tonight, not tonight!" Within a mile of that intersection, I lost sight of the lights, continuing on to Mayfield road, where I stopped and go out to look back. In the distance, at least a mile back, I could see the lights hovering, still flashing their colors, at about 600 feet, I would guess. Since then, I have interviewed four differnt persons of different ages, from 13 to 65, who have seen this craft in the same area. In addition, Tim Good's book, Above Top Secret, contains a piece concerning a man who lived 30 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio, who observed a UFO on the ground for 20 minutes. This location is exactly 30 miles east of cleveland, and the gentleman named in the book lives on the same road. There is a lot of activity in this area, and it should be investigated.
