Bright Light on Meadowbrook State Parkway

I was driving Northbound on the Meadowbrook State Parkways, right around Jones Beach. I was alone in the car going for a joyride. I remember thinking to myself, "I know I am going to see something extraordinary tonight."

Where I was driving, there is a lot of air traffic. I'm very familiar with a lot of the aircrafts, frankly because I see them every night. I remember looking toward the north sky, and seeing about 3 airplanes. I looked back to the road, and noticed I was the only car driving Northbound (for at least a couple of miles). I looked back to where the planes were, and saw a huge white light in the middle of the sky. It looked unfamiliar to me. There were no flashing lights, or anything else that may have caused it to be recognized as an airplane. It was moving very slow. I was going about 40 mph (because I was the only one on the parkway). It slowly glided down the sky, and ended up on my left side, over the water. It stayed in that position, seeming to be following me, for about 7 minutes. Then it looked as if it was getting farther away... I drover under the overpass. Coming out the other side, I looked back to the sky, and the light was brighter than ever. It was if it had gotten closer in those few seconds. I was in total disbelief. I became scared because in my heart I knew something was watching me. I began to move slower. I took my eyes off of it for the last time. I looked back and it was gone.
