Large Round Liighted Craft hovering over a pond - summer 83 - intersection of Rt32 and New York State Thruway - Platekill NY

On my way home from working 2nd shift as a computer operator(Summer 1983) - I witnessed a large round craft hovering over a pond at the intersection of Rt32 and the New York State Thruway. I heard no sound but my windows were shut. I got a good look at this craft and kept it in my view even as I sped away looking in my rearview mirror. It was the size of the pond hovering just over the treetops. There were lights on the craft. I saw other cars, noticing the southbound cars on the Thruway. I have looked at sites before looking for someone else who may have seen this. Through the years I have told my story - always hoping that someone else witnessed this. It was truly amazing and I thought many times -- maybe it was the lights on the dashboard or fatigue from work - but that is not the case. (This was right around my 24th birthday)
