Saw a UFO at night in the woods near power lines.

Was sitting in a car with 4 friends in the woods. There were power lines going through the woods for miles in one direction. We were just talking and facing in one direction of the lines. One friend mentioned a bright star and the rest of us looked at it and paid no attention.

After about 5 min, it got bright enough to look like a plane was coming straight along with the power lines and had a headlight. When it got close enough for us to get a good look at it, it was right over the tree line. It had 3 colors swinging under it. Blue, white and red. We had one car window rolled down and I noticed there was no sound coming from the "so called plane". I turned the radio off, rolled down my window and so did my friends. We all sat there silently watching this thing pass by. It made a silent whining sound and passed by very slowly and dissapeared beyond the trees. After we couldn't see it anymore, my friends panicked. We never could explain what it was and noone could explain to us what it was. It was about 50 feet from us when it passed by at about 5 MPH. I am now 35 and this happened when I was around 18 years old. Every now and then, we talk about it and we can't figure out what it was. Maybe some kind of high tech government plane?
