Cylinder flying object west on I-80 before Winnemucca, Nevada with bright strange lights.

Driving down I 80 west, heading towards Winnemucca, my boyfriend first spotted this aircraft. Pointing it out to me-- white and orange lights vaguely showed through the distance. Just only several miles down the road, it was directly prior to our van. I was driving, while my boyfriend hung out the window-- staring at what he knew was not a terrestrial spacecraft. Describing it, he still hesitates in his own amazement. "It was the length of a football field, and width of two jumbo-jet planes, but it had no wings. Moving in complete silence, it must have traveled up to thousanth's in the mile while heading downward, and then haulting to a hovering pace." Estimating we were driving at about 70 mi/hr--braking to about 60; the spacecraft must have slowed to a mere 40-45 mi/hr. It came about about 1/25 a mile away from my boyfriend. Seeing it face-foward, he described a large window, defining it as more of an entrance, possibly, than an outlook. The lights were of a variety. Seeing blue, red, yellow, orange, and white, they stood solid, with no flickers or blinks. We proceeded to travel west and looking back notice the object hovered above a tree and house. Emitting a bright triangular like shroud of light in the dark of night, giving us the ability to see the tree and house from our distance. Demonstrating an output of what seemed to be an unending power. THIS WE HAD SEEN TOGETHER, IT IS TRUE... AND DESCRIBED TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE.
