witnessed small oblong object with red and blue lights hovering above my vehicle.

I was traveling west on Del Mar Heights road at approx 21:20 in the evening. Traffic was very light, and I was stopped at a controlled (traffic light) intersection. I had the sun roof open and witnessed a small (approx 6-7ft in length and half as wide in silhouette) oblong oblect with red and blue lights with no other distinguishing features. It was traveling at a leisurely pace from the north east to the south west. It was just above the tree line (roughly 80 feet above the ground). It passed directly over my vehicle and was completely silent. I initailly disregarded it as a small helicopter but was rather perplexed by the fact that it made no sound at all. It was a warm evening and I had both of the front windows rolled down and the sun roof open. I would have heard any sound that it made above a whisper.

I then turned northbound on the I-5 freeway.

At 22:15 I had run my errand and was returning home on the south bound I-5. As I entered the exit ramp for Del Mar Heights road I caught site, in my peripheral vision, of red and blue lights above my vehicle. I looked up through my open sun roof and saw the same object that I had witnessed earlier directly above, and keeping pace with, my vehicle. This time it was no more than 25 feet above me and again making no sound what so ever. I slowed and it slowed with me. I felt my wheels on the shoulder of the exit ramp and looked back at the road for only a second and looked back up. The object had disappeared.

The weather was dry with a light marine layer building in above approx 150 feet. The object was well below the marine layer on both sightings.
