Weird Lights In Tampa

I was heading to Tampa from Fort Lauderdale Friday night for a buisness trip with 2 friends. It rained most of the way but stopped about an hour south of Tampa. We were heading northbound on i-75 and I estimate the time to be around 9:30pm. We were still not in any metropolitan area, pretty much in the middle of nowhere.Off in the distance i saw a baby blue greenish and white light, spaced apart but on the same aircraft, which i took to be a helicopter. After a few seconds I look again and something about the way it was flying wasnt right. Just then my friend (the one was asleep in the backseat) in the passenger seat says, " do you see that?" I acknowledged it was wierd. A few seconds later it was right over us comming from the west to the east toward the highway at a pretty high speed. As soon as it was directly over us it flipped, reversed and started heading west again finally shooting away. When directly over us it could have been no more then 100 feet way. When it changed directions, i know something was up and just as it was starting to head away i stuck my head out the window to catch a glimpse and could actually see the craft. It was FLIPPING head over end as it turned! It was a greyish dull metallic i could tell. But as too its shape it was hard to make out being that i was doing about 70mph and it too was moving. But probably an oval or saucer. It had a greenish baby blue light on one end and a white light on the other. Me and my friend started yelling at each other ,"DID YOU SEE THAT ((deleted))!" waking my friend in the back who slept through it all. Well there was about 4 other cars around me who all had to have seen the thing too. So thats why i say there are probably plenty of other witnesses. Some even were hitting there breaks when it came over the road. Weird stuff.
