very large craft, siting dead still in mid air ,very low and in broad daylight, could see the seams in the metal

Me and my brother were riding a motorcycle thru the middle of town it was a Saturday evening he started pulling on my arm and pointing and as I was trying to drive was trying to figure out what he was doing until I stopped at a red light on a hill just beyond Otts service station on one corner was a Methodist Church which was a very large building,I looked up above the church and there was this very large saucer shaped craft just dead still in mid air it had a very low humming noise I couldn't believe what I was seeing but several others were as amazed as I was, I could see a lot of detail to the craft a very dull steel with the smoothest seams where the metal was joined together,around the diameter of the craft were square large panels each flashing on and off a yellow, green, and white light alternating around the craft, the saucer just sat there and in the middle of a heat wave it was very cold so cold I wanted a sweater,as the craft started to move I intended to follow as far as I could, it was heading toward warrior river and I was excellerating faster and faster trying to keep up knowing where a major curve in the road was I knew I was going to have to slow down but befor we got there the craft suddenly did a left turn and at a speed that I couldn't believe shot straight up and disapeared into the sky towards space... I asked my brother 20 years later if we really seen what we seen or did we imagine it he said to not ever doubt it we were there we seen it and thats that, I have seen a few pictures on line similar to it,... after all these years I still remember thats why I now report it to you....I hope to see it again
