Three saucer shaped craft with sequentially flashing multicolored lights followed young couple who experienced lost time

At approximately 1:00 A.M. in October 1974, my wife and I, being a young newly married couple, were riding in the country, as lots of youg kids do. We were approximately one mile out of town from Hopkinsville and had come to the end of the Concord Lane. You had to turn either left or right onto the Greenville Road. As we both looked to the right toward town we saw three saucer shaped craft several hunderd feet in the air and looked as if they were between a quarter to a half mile from us. The craft had multicolored lights on the underneath side that sequentially flashed. The sighting scared both of us of course, and I instinctively turned left and continued heading out of town. We were both looking back to see what the craft were doing and noticed they appeared to be following us. About a quarter of a mile down the Greenville Road was a secondary road. We turned right onto the Antioch Road and noticed that all three craft were still following us. Approximately one to two miles out this road was a small lake. As we started rounding the curve that bordered lake Tandy, we saw all three craft hovering above the lake and the craft in the center of the three, had flames coming from the center of it's underneath side. I immediately turned in a driveway that was just past the curve in order to turn around. My wife says the next thing she remembered was being back on the Concord Lane heading toward our apartment. But I honestly don't remember anything from the point in time I turned in the drive to turn around, untill I was actually getting out of the car back at the apartment at which time we noted the time being 4:00 A.M.
