Fire ball spotted while on highway

Me and my friends were driving home from Snow Ridge and we were getting on the highway just outside Syracuse. We were in the back of my friends truck when this ball of glowing red appeared about 200 meters in front of us. We started to slow down to get a better look as we came just under the ball we quickly realized that it was only a about a hundred feet in the air. The craft then split into two parts. As we drove under the craft its stayed right above us as if it was following us. My friend took one of the high beam spot lights and flashed at it a few times. The craft got brighter and scared us all. Just then it took off very fast.
