What did the UFO look like, shape/size in relation to terrestrial objects/lights/colour :

What I saw was a close (treetop) point of light hovering over a stream. When it zoomed off, I saw a tail exhaust type emission. It was the darkest color of red I had ever seen.

Did the UFO do any strange things like hover and then zoom off quickly :

I was driving along the same gravel road I travel daily. I noticed a point of white light at treetop level. Four things happened at the exact same second. (1) I stopped the car. (2) The point of white light disappeared. (3) The full moon shined on the side of the square vehicle. It reminded me of a metal barn roof. (4) I saw the blood red tail of the vehicle as it sped off in a southeast direction. I waited three weeks before I even told my wife. She is the only person I have ever told before now.

Any additional comments :

For some reason, I knew the instant that I saw it, that it was getting water. I didn’t know the human brain could take in that much information in that short a period of time.
