Disk, up close, colored lights around perimeter and red dome on top. Off hwy 50 by Belscott and Aikens Grocery Store

I lived in ((name deleted)) Trailer Court. I went to Belscott off hwy 50 to be with my friend to meet her brother, as she was going to O'Fallon High School with me and then her brother picked her up from Belscott. It was broad daylight and we saw a bright shiny object far away and it looked like a very bright light.

((girl's name deleted)) got into her brother's car and I started walking home. I don't remember anything until it was pitch dark and I was in front of the mailboxes with a dark large round disc hovering over me. I ran home and it followed me, it waited until I ran out with my mother and hovered over the trailer next to ours. Then it tilted itself so we could see the whole thing. It had lights all aound the perimeter and they worked like a movie marquee in that when one light went off the next one went on and so on all around the saucer. It was big and very bright and colorful and it seemed that the colored lights had a hypnotizing effect. There was also a red dome on ! top of it. I can only describe the dome like the red lights on the Navy ships when it is dark (I was in the Navy, retired from Air Force). There was absolutely no sound. The date is approximate and the time is approximate because I have missing time.
