Large, silver flying object with light beaming down.

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I were on our way to the beach for a special occasion. We left around 9:00 p.m. so we didn't have to deal with all the traffic, it's about a 2 hour drive from where we live.

On the way there we were on the empty highway, and we saw something about 100 feet away from us. At first we thought it was a large road light but as we got closer we realized it wasn't. It was silver with red lights along the bottom and shaped like an arrow, hovering about 25 feet above the ground with a light beaming down. There was a small building beneath it, where the light was shining. We pulled over to the side of the highway to get a better look, but as soon as we did this it sped away and was gone. There is no way a plane could have flew away that quickly. In only about 5 seconds after it started moving, it was completely out of sight.

There were no trees around or anything else that could have blocked the view. I was told that planes cannot stay in one place while in the air and this thing had definitely been there for awhile before we got close. I looked on the internet for any other possible explanation of what it would have been, but have yet to find anything close. I never believed stories about possible UFO sightings, but after this experience my outlook has changed.
