Kanawha River West Virgina 1994

My wife, and I were traveling east on I-64 from St. Louis headed for West Virgina,and we had just entered into Huntington, or Charleston West Virgina near the Kanawha river about 4:30 am on Christmas eve,or Christmas day I am not sure about which day when. I was driving,and my wife was awake in the passanger seat when I told her to look over to the left,but before that I noticed an air craft that resembled a helichopter which dropped a container into the Kanawha river that looked like a parachute, then the container was lifted back up into the air craft.After that I started to slow downand,and also roll my window down to hear the sound of what I thought was a helichopter,but we hear no sound at all,and we were only about 100 yards away.We watched as the air craft moved very slowly behind the trees near the river as I followed it's path,and about 100 yards down the river when it stopped,and we pulled over to the side of the road to a stop. We both looked up just over the trees to a large window shaped object with a bright clear window that had a small bright round red,and green or even a small blue light I can't be sure on the blue light. What was so scary is that it made no sound at all from a very close range,and moved side to side up and down trying to avoid us. After we looked at it for a few minutes my wife said let's get the hell out of here.
