I seen a blunt horizontal oval light streak through the sky then lifting up while in flight and turning red then blue and disappearing

To begin with, my mother, my girlfriend, my nephew, and i were all in my mothers car on the way home from a house warming party. I myself in the driver seat while my mother riding up front, sat in the passenger seat. When the sighting occurred my mother and I were the only ones who were able to witness it because my girlfriend and my nephew sat in the back seat, meanwhile my nephew was sound asleep.

Next, we seen a streak of light above us, similar to a shooting star. First it appeared to be a shooting star, then in astonishment, it appeared to be in a horizontal oval, it didn't just shoot through the sky fading from sight. At the sight of this abnormal object it seemed to be traveling in the same direction we were headed, but to my suprises not as slow as an airplane or helicopter, and at first not as fast as a shooting star. Yet it seemed to be going at an acceptionally fast speed. It also didn't have any sound, in reference to any airplane or jet. Which a jet would have been a good explanation except the fact that a jet doesn't fly silently.

In addition, this object in the sky didn't appear to be flying at a high altitude. In fact it seemed pretty low as if it were a helicopter trying to find someone or something. At first it was just a stream of light then it came lower then it was, not by much but still a little lower. Then it suddenly picked up speed and the aluminescence grew into a stream of light trailing a ball of light. Then it seemed to reach a higher area in the sky and at this moment it changed colors immediately from white, to red, then instantly blue and within a fraction of a second it was gone. It almost seemed to have maybe gone behind a thick cloud, due to the weather we've been having. Then my mother and I realized, there wasn't any clouds in the immediate area of the night sky.

Ultimately, the sight was both shocking and surprising, given it all occured within the most two seconds, or less. I confidentally believe what I witnessed wasn't anything in our United States technological capabilities, unless it was an SR-71 Blackbird in central Floridas air space. It's one of the only flying objects to my knowledge that would fly close to the speed, without sound, and disappear from sight instantaniously with little conflict, compared to what I witnessed. Besides the SR-71 doesn't hit an immediate "warp speed" and aluminate in red then blue and disappear. I know it sounds tampered with but the object had a blunt oval shape to my sight, possibly due to the engle of visual but to my knowledge it was practicaly oval.
