Train like ufo on Airport Rd in Longmont

This would have been in 1995 - maybe late 94 or early 96. I was taking my wife home (she was then my girlfriend) down Airport Rd in Longmont. We were heading south and the event happened north of the airport. Back then, Airport Rd was a small, thin two lane road lined with telephone poles. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a long orange glowing object suddenly passing the other direction in the other lane between my car and the telephone poles that were lined up right against the lane going the other direction. The object was floating (traveling, but in the air) about the height of my car window. It was long and continuous, like a floating train passing in the other lane, but with no breaks (no "train cars"). Couldn't have been a plane because there was no noise, it was long (took several seconds to pass - several), and a plane would have clipped its wings on either my car or the telephone poles lining the other side of the street. As mentioned, it was simi! lar to a train, but probably not as tall - maybe half the height. I never did take a direct look at it - was driving and got nervous - kept my eyes forward. Did not see it coming - it just all of a sudden was passing in the other direction on the side of us. The vehicle behind us (only other vehicle on the back then quiet road) began flashing its lights at us and honking as soon as the object passed (I remember what the vehicle was - but don't want to say in case anyone ever says it was them, so they can tell me what they were driving to prove it was them). The object itself was nowhere to be seen. I didn't stop for the other vehicle - I floored it instead - wish I would have stopped to talk with the other vehicle about what we had seen. My wife usually denies this ever happened in front of other people - only confesses to me sometimes about what we saw.
