Location: New Smyrna/Deland, FL
Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 4 mins
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
30 to 50 foot cylindrical flew direct over my car. I watched it for 5 mins.

I was heading East on SR 44, around 12:04AM EST just coming from Orlando going toward Port Orange. A large cylindrical object flew right over my car about 50 to 60 feet in altitude, 30 to 50 feet in length, dark if not black in color. I noticed the color cause as it passed me it turned slightly and silently to the right, and the moon reflected off the surface of it. It was not shiny more dull in color. It had a large white light in the back. About the circumference of the body of it; But the light was not blinding. It would be like if you took a 60 watt bulb and through a diffuser in front of it. And it had a blinking red light on top. It had not a smooth surface. The surface looked like entangled piping. There was no sound that I could hear. It passed me going about 80 or 90 MPH then slowed and moved to the passenger side while gaining a little altitude. At this time it is increasing speed. It then moved to the driverís side of the road and flew just above the treetops and hovered.

It then crossed the road again (passenger side) and it looked like it deceased altitude and was coming back towards me. The object was less than a quarter of a mile away at this time. Then at a high rate of speed, flew above the tree tops to my left and a few miles away and hovered again crossed the road and looked like it was going in for a landing, cause it decreased speed greatly and looked like it was descending. I watched it for 5 mins. I swear to you this is fact and true!
