..the light was a very rich red and was clearly seen against the clear dark night sky.

As my friend and I were navigating some sharp bends in the road we saw in the sky approx. 1 mile away and about 100 feet in the air a large bright red light. It was travelling slowly across the sky, stopped and then seemed to dive to the earth changing shape to a cylindrical form. It could have been about 30 feet long and about 15 feet wide approx. The light seemed to quiver but kept its shape and dissapeared when it reached the ground. The light was a very rich red set against the dark night and was clearly visible on that clear night. As we travelled further along the road about another 2 miles my friend saw a rod shaped light of white/electric blue fly across the field to our left and hover on the road about 18 inches above the ground and was about 20 inched long. It appeared to be extremely vibrant and clearly seen. It was motionless in the road when I (the driver) saw it and we seemed to drive straight through it. My friend saw the inside of the car momentarily light up as we did so. This sparked off a great deal of thought and discussion between us. The rest of the journey of a few miles saw no further event and we were none the worse for our experience.
