Oval object, center portion having windows, internally lit with tall figures glaring out, seen in MI, spring eveng1978.

Traveling one evening with 2 small children in the back seat, I noticed a streak of light in the sky which was approaching very fast below the horizon line. The area became intersection became very dark, and traffic and street light went out. I pulled over into an empty parking lot near a building, wondering what it was and get a better look. A doomed shaped object came in at impossible speeds (no sound at all) and hovered directly in front of where I was and hovered motionless above the building. The center rotated and was lit from the inside. I felt that I was being watched. To my suprise there were tall figures dressed in what appeared to be blue jumpsuits. All were very alike with shoulder length yellow hair. I could see into the craft and it appeared that they were aware that I was there and looked out of clear widows that made up the middle portion of the craft (which rotated. The underside of the craft was lit with bright white lights. Then it shot up at lighting speed, again without any sound and streaked off as it accelerated to nothing more than a pin point of light and disapeared. I went down the nearest street, but it had vanished and was gone. I considered going to the police to report it and actually started to do this, but decided no one at all would believe me. This was a friday pm est, and on the next Tuesday on the car radio there was a news report that over norther Michigan there had been sightings ufo's and the description match exactly what I had seen just a few evenings before. I am a professional person with advanced degrees, and have only talked about this with family.
