Low flying object hovering w/ blue underbelly and eight bright lights oval in shape central Florida

I was heading from Orlando to Ft. Lauderdale and was traveling on Route 60 which connects the Florida turnpike to route 95. The connecting road is about 25 miles and was about 9 miles on route 60 towards route 95 when I noticed blinking lights up the road. Just thought they were lights on a pole but as I got closer, the lights were hovering over the other side of the road. The object was hovering about two or three times the height of a light pole and was about 3 or 4 times the size of my car. The object was oval, almost rectagular with curved corners. I only viewed it from the underside but it had an oval underbelly that glowed a dull teal blue and had two horizontal bands that also appeared blue but a bit darker. The bands on the underbelly appeared to structures within the oval underbelly. There were 8 bright lights that surrounded the blue convex underbelly. The 8 white lights were very bright and went on and off with a regular cycle and alternated with the blue underbelly light that went on and off alternately with the white lights. The white lights would be on then total blackness, then the blue underbelly oval light ( very dull ) then total darkeness then the white lights. It did move a bit to my left and at an angle as I approached. Unfortunately, I had just passed a slow moving vehicle and there was no breakdown lane and also a ditch on each side of the road, so I could not pull over to get a better look, without causing an accident with the car that I just passed, although, that car must have seen the object. There was just nowhere to pull over at that time. One last thing, I noticed a punjent slightly burning oder in my car after I passed it, very subtle.
