bright light follows, ascends, reappears in rural, PA

Driving home early Sun. morning, I was on of two passengers in a small pickup. I was admiring the orange-tint on the horizon when I noticed a bright star-like light up high and behind our direction of travel. At first I thought it must be a bright star, but within seconds I studied it and determined there were no stars visible like this. It was too bright and too low; it had my full attention. After a couple of minutes I further determined it could not be stationary because it remained the same distance from us. I insisted the other passenger observed this light with me. Then it made a sudden ascension staight up very, very high into the night sky until the light became tiny and then gone. The ascension was rapid, but not "lightspeed." My excitement level rose. Almost immediately, I noticed it right in the very same place behind and above us. I continued to press the other passenger to focus on it. Within the next couple of minutes, it ascended straight up again. I did not see it rise as high as the first time, but I was sure the other passenger saw this movement. Again the light reappeared in its same location. Shortly after disappearing I don't know to where. We must have been the only vehicle on those rural roads that time of morning. It followed us until we were almost in the town of Carlisle, PA. I,ve had about three unexplainable experiences in my life which baffle me to this day. One very involved experience took place in the FL panhandle; I ended up in Tallahasse. Crazy stuff happened over a significant amount of time. When it started it was day, night when over. Anyway, anyone interested I'll share all the different experiences I've had...
