Saw a Cigar like object that flashed a red beam at my face

Feb. 28 2006, It was Wednesday night around 8 pm cst. I was heading home on heading south on Western Ave. at around 27st. I noticed a bright light to the left side in the sky. I thought it was an airplane as I see many airplanes in that area because they are heading to Midway airport to land. As I kept going on southbound on Western Ave. I kept getting close, but it looked weird. It look like a plane with no wings and it had lights flashing. The lights look like they were dancing. So I speed up and made a right hand turn at 36th street and parked at the corner. I didn't get off the my car, but I opened the window. As it passed westward I saw this on its side. When I said this is no plane, a red light flashed in my face. It disorientated me for a few seconds. It seemed like a sign telling me they saw me. As It continue westward, it turned now heading southbound. It seemed it picked up speed and I didn't see it anymore.

I was 5 mintues away from home. When I got home my mom was making something to eat. I went right to the mirror to see if there was anything on my face because I felt a burning sensation. I even asked my mom if she noticed anything on my face. She said no. I went to my parents bedroom where my dad was and told him, dad you are not going to believe what I saw. He said to me that he heard it pass by. Before telling him anything. My dad said he heard a hover/murmur noise. My dad said he even look out his bedroom window to see what it was, but he didn't see anything just the noise.

Well, this is my story. It is a bit lenghtly, but this is my experience what happened.
