UFO over Boca Raton, FL?

I don't really blieve in aliens or anything making it to earth, but me and a friend saw the strangest craft one night. We were driving north on I-95 back home at about 10pm when we saw this ball of orange light in the northwest. I was the first to point it out, as I was the passenger. It looked like a meteor or something. I was a little freaked out at first -- I kept having visions like in the movies, where the meteor crashes to Earth and all hell breaks loose. But the 'ball' never hit. It sort of faded out and disappeared at first. My friend saw it too and decied to pull over to safely view whatever it was. A couple seconds later it was hovered almost directly over us; it was pretty large...larger than a helicopter and had no visible wings, more like a long triangle. There were no flashing beacons or standard collision lights except 3 dim white lights on the bottom. It hovered for about 5 minutes before this huge (about 1/3 the size of the craft it self) bright blue afterburn came out the back and it took off. In a couple of seconds it sped off towards the northeast and was gone for good. What was so strange was that there didn't seem to be much sound when the craft took off; I was expecting a sonic boom at the least, but nothing. My friend and I could not believe what we had just seen. About a half hour later in a supermarket, a woman overheard us talking about the event we had seen and chimed in that her son had seen the same thing at a soccer game.
