We were coming back from picking up my kids from Tallahassee (Florida) a 3 1/2 hour drive, about 1 mile from our apartment when I noticed something off to my left while driving home. My two kids were asleep as well as my girlfriend. I thought it was a plane because of the lights on the corners and left it at that. As I was turning the corner into our apartments, I slowed and pulled off the road because I saw it again on the opposite side of the road. I stopped and watched it, thinking it would just keep flying by but when I stopped it stopped, dipping down about maybe 20 feet on the tree tops then went back up.

At this point I started getting that nervous feeling: like when the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. I then rolled down my window to hear the engine or any noise coming from it but there was none. At this time I was shaking Melinda (my girlfriend) awake to help me figure what this thing was. She asked me what was the problem, and I told her to look out her window and tell me what she saw.

She woke up quickly and asked, "What the hell is that?" I told here I had no clue. Then it started turning clockwise, and we observed a blinking light under the object. I then felt relieved because I thought it's got to be a plane, but as I focused on the light, it was more of a strobe then a blinking light, going in different repetitions like (and bear with me) blink...blink blink blink ... blink blink ... blink... I do know that plane lights do not do this. We watched it for about 5 minutes until it just, well, like zipped away, not leaving a streak, just not being there. I followed up by looking in the local papers or kind of poking around at our neighbors without being straight forward, but with no luck...I still have no idea what it was...and hope maybe by chance someone close around here might read this and have seen something similar to this ... thanks for your time.
