Green lit-up horizon with saucer like flying object.

Me and my dad were out in a graveyard in Des Moines trying to get a picture of a ghost or something, and he doesn't beleive me, but there was a UFO-like thing out on the horizon, the whole thing was lit up green with a black saucer-like figure flying slowly above it, It had lights and the whole works!

Our car engine had stopped for about a minute or so, until it was out from being infront of the car. This was probably in a 5 mile radius from us. I couldn't beleive it! I told my dad, and he refused to look back.

By the time we got home, he looked back, and it was too late. It was gone already. But what would you expect from a UFO?
