Close Encounter with a large cigar shaped UFO.

I was driving westward on Coral Way (sw 24th St.), when at about 87th Ave. I noticed several bright lights in the horizon. At that point I thought they were aircraft and joked with my little sister and cousin about them being UFO'S. As we got closer I coud tell that they weren't aircraft but looked more like the stadium lights at FIU (Florida Int'l University).

But as we approached the intersection at 107 Ave., I realized that stadium lights were much farther. When we finally gor to the intersection, I stopped my car, got off and directly above me was this huge bright and white cigar shaped light. It didn't make any noise whatsoever. Suddenly, a small green light started blinking and it silently began to descend as it drew away from us. In ended up hovering above some bushes about a block away. To make a long story short, after almost crashing trying to get close to the UFO again, I decided to drop the chase since by then my little sister and cousin were very scared. A couple of days later I heard on the radio that there had been other reports of UFO sightings in the area.
