Duration:2 minutes
Small low flying, fast aircraft with bright lights.

I was driving 45 mph southwest down Cherokee road at 8:30PM, just passing Cherokee elementary school and there was a large object a little to my right and behind the school with little to no noticeable motion. It was a good distance away in the sky with 4 bright white lights (2 on each wing) and a small orange pulsing light in the middle. The white lights weren't blindingly bright, but was noticeably brighter than a normal aircraft.

I kept driving for maybe a tenth of a mile and the trees started to block my view, once I could see it again somehow it was already over to my left, and it seemed just a little further away.

Still driving now at about 40 mph for maybe another tenth of a mile, I could tell the object was now directly over the road, but now it was a lot closer to me than it had been. This is when I noticed the orange light and the shape of it. For a few seconds the object was basically flying right above my car, like it was matching my speed. I had my head over my steering wheeling looking up at it as much as I could, while still watching the road. I rolled down my right windows, but I couldn't hear it making any noise. I think if it was a helicopter or plane I would have heard it with as low as it was. The shape of it reminded me of a U.S. B-2 stealth plane, but the object was narrower than that.

It never had any jerky motion, it always seemed like it was kind of hovering but moving horizontally. Also it was flying low, but it's size seemed relatively small.

I lost sight of it when it was above my car and never saw it again.
