Haunting overhead light

My parents and I had been visiting my aunt and uncle in Pass Christian, Ms. We lived in the next town just east of Long Beach. We had been invited to have chicken gumbo at their home. After finishing supper my Dad had fallen asleep while watching T.V. It was around 2:00 a.m. before we finally left for home. We were traveling east on Pineville Rd. when all of a sudden the entire inside of our vehicle lit up a bright blueish/white. We had no idea what was going on and were scared half to death. The light seemed to extend to either side of us. There were fenced fields to our left and right near the road and the light touched just beyond the fences to the best of my recolection. There was no sound and no other vehicles in the area. I remember my Dad stopping the car. My Mom said..."What's that...where is it coming from"? I was sitting in the middle of the back seat and couldn't figure out what was happening. My first instinct was to look up because I thought the overhead car light had turned on, but then quickly remembered it was busted out. I believe Dad had stepped out of the car, crossed the ditch to the right of us, looked out in the field, came back and said..."It's not coming from out there". The next thing I remember is riding the rest of the way home and entering the house, looking at the digital clock on the dining table (can't remember what time it read) and going to bed.The next morning while Mom and I sat at the table sipping on a cup of tea she remarked..."I wonder what that seemed to come from above and behind us. I was too scared to turn around". Well we were all terrified...of what I don't know. It seemed almost 'taboo' to discuss the subject. We all felt violated for some reason. Nothing made sense to any of us. We felt like silence was an 'instruction' and we wern't suppose to talk about this occurance. It still haunts me today because I can't remember just what this was that invaded our lives. Both my parents are deceased now and I can only hope one day I'll find the a! nswers.
