Unknown Craft Hovers Over I-10

I was heading east on interstate 10 on the evening of December 10th, 2004 when ahead of me in the distance on the right side hovering just off the freeway shoulder, I am guessing a few hundred feet from the ground, was an object. It had a bright white light in the middle of it, and extending from either side of this craft were two rectangular shaped "arms." Those were also lit brightly. (white light)

The curious thing though, as I drove closer to it, I noticed, what I can only describe as panels. They appeared black. and every other panel was lite very brightly. This was no plane as I noticed no beacon lights on it. Thinking it may have been a helicopter I looked for signs of the tail. There was none. I pulled over on the side of the road. My vehicle was facing east and I was facing west. It had no markings of a helicopter or a conventional aircraft. The closes I could come to what it looked like was a satelite. Though NO satelite hovers in earths atmoshpere especially this close to the ground. I watched it as it hovered and it headed in a southern direction. I also noticed the traffic on the highway was also slowing down. I estimate viewing this for at least five minutes until this craft slowly picked up speed then darted off quickly in a southern direction.
