Saw a red long blinking light in a holler, bobbing side to side, spotlit craft and then slowly over me, & shot like bullet outta view

I was out on highway road hunting and saw what I thought was a radio tower slowly blinking, until I realized it was in a holler below my vantage point on top of hill. Noticed it was slowly moving small movements side to side, so after watching it for about 5 minutes, I grabbed my spotlight out of truck. I lit it up, was some kind of aircraft about 25-30 feet wide & around 8-9 feet thick, looked to be a triangle shape with rounded tips, and on the sides of the points there where backlit red crystal like panels strobing slowly. I noticed it was extremely quiet running, was around 15 feet off the ground, and the trees & grasses beneath it seemed to be gently blowing around. After about 10-15 seconds of it spotlighted, it raised out of the holler, came at me, went over me about 20-30 feet above me, with spotlight I could make out ribbed hoses running half-spherically across the bottom of it, it was all flat black, and the thing vibrated the hell out of me as it passed over like a giant sonic toothbrush feeling. It continued to move away from me to the west, I could see approximately 60 miles, but once it was a quarter mile away it shot off out of my 60 mile view in 2-3 seconds. I used to assume it was something from Whiteman's AFB that flies aircraft thru there often & originally called them to ask if anything was flying thru there in that timeframe and they said no, but I figured they probably would've said that either way honestly. I've never seen anything like it before that night, nor since - but would like to know what it might've been tho.
