It was at 2:30 a.m. while I was watering my father’s garden because he was on vacation. The area is a bit desolent and quiet with the usual frogs and crickets making the only noise at night. While watering the garden I looked at the stars and noticed what seemed to be a satellite going in the southern direction in a straight line and a good rate of speed. At the time I noticed this object it became quiet any eerie. All I heard was the wind. The object never made a noise. It flew on for about 2 minutes almost seeming to go up, not out in distance. Then it sparatically went into a zigzag pattern while flying in a circle at the same rate of speed. The object never blinked once through the whole encounter. I became so chilled I ran down to the house, turned all the lights off, locked up and jumped in my car to head home. For the first mile or so it is a dirt road with potholes. While driving down this road slowly, I noticed as if the object had started to follow me. As soon as I hit the pavement I hit the gas. For the next 10 minutes or so the object got closer and brighter. At one point my radio volume turned way up for no reason at all. After that, I stopped trying to keep location of it and floored it all the way home which is about 40 minutes more but only took me about 30 minutes. After reaching my home, I spent about 20 minutes trying to locate the object which was gone. The object when I first saw it was about the size of a pinhead if the pin is held at arms reach away. When I last looked at it when it was following me was about the size of a marble about arms reach away that was a little hazy on one side.
