Disk shaped craft in North Carolina near Currituck

I was driving along NC-158 going about 70 MPH and saw a white object fly over the top of my car and thought it may have been an owl. It seemed to hover up the road and the flew off into the woods. A minute later the object, or one like it approached from the left shot out in front and hovered like before. This object was above any streetlights and seemed to be producing its own light. It was a soft, white, pulsing glow. After a few seconds and before I could approach it completely, it dashed off eastward and that was all I saw of it.

It was shaped like a disk but on either end had one, wavy, streamerlike "tentacle" that also seemes to glow a bit and when the craft was moving, these would flow behind it. When the craft hovered, the tentacles went out to the sides, in line with the craft (like you would see the wrappers ends on the end of a piece of hard candy but longer) and they would move like a flag does in a calm wind.
