big bright light coming closer 4 ufo objects in sky pink cloud over us couldnt see where we were going

driving home from my daughters house tuesday night the 4 th of sept. it appeared the sun was going down but it was different because it kept getting brighter and brighter i am 50 years old and ive never seen anything like this before every direction we turned it was there it was like it was getting closer and closer to us.we had to hold a paper in front of us to be able to see bright orange that radiated so much its hard to describe then pretty soon the bright light was gone maybe an hr then we noticed there was a cloud of pink all around us just like when your in the fog the bottom half was veery sharp blue and on top of it was very pink we could hardly see and it appeared as though it was getting closer we couldnt even see the trees in front of us. then when we stopped to look to see what happened to the bright light the pink was still there and in the sky there was 4 ships they were not airplanes or vapor they angled down ward and 2 looked a little smaller we could see a light at the part that was angled down the ships were very sharp and there was the pink clouds that were near them and they looked like clouds ive never seen before almost like a design of some kind you could see the crafts turning right and you could almost expect them to land when i got to my house 15 min later there was no pink clouds aand no crafts any where . i was really scared aand this is not a story i was scared . all the time we were driving it looked like the pink clouds or mist what ever it was , could come down on us my 8 year old grand son was with me and he was really scared we sped up and got home as fast as we could
