Petrified Forest strobing ufo

As I was travelling westbound 10 miles east of Petrified Forest I came upon an unusual craft sitting about 100 yards north of the Interstate 40. This happened around 4 am in either Jan., Feb., or Mar., of 2000.

It's taken me a while to report this and I can only try to describe what I remember. Of course like everything else, I have to wonder if what I saw was real.

Anyways, it was and oval craft with a strobe flashing like crazy on top, 4 lights in the middle, I forgot the colors and if they were flashing, and one more light on the bottom. Coming out of the craft away from me, behind the craft was an incredible light shining northwards, it was so bright that I could see the top of the plains, I'd say about 1 mile away from me. It was brighter than any spotlight or headlight I've ever seen.

I was stunned by what I saw and at the same time afraid of something so mysterious.

I passed by and as I did so, I passed a semi trailer heading west. I know he saw it, as I looked in my rearview mirrors, I could see his brake lights come on for an instant, and I'm pretty sure he got the heck out of there like I did.
