Blocky cigar shaped craft with bright green light in front, rectangular chunk missing from middle, and tail fins crosses parkway twice

Driving on the parkway South around mile marker 60, I see a bright diamond shaped green light approach the parkway from the left tree-line. The light gradually gets bigger and I notice there is a small red circular light behind it. Gradually it becomes clear I am looking at some sort of cigar shaped craft with the green light in the front and the red light in the back. It wasn't as big as a commercial aircraft, but not small either, maybe a few cars long (it could not cover the length of the 3 lanes on the parkway).

It floated over the parkway until it reached the tree line to my right, and then made a graceful approximately 180 degree turn with the front of the craft as the pivot point then proceeded to return to the other side of the parkway. At this point, I had slowed down (as did the car next to me) to get a better look and realized the craft had no wings and, as far as I could tell, was silent (I rolled down my window). It ended up flying right over my car, at which point I could tell that it had a large upper and small lower fin on the backside that were blockier than the average airplane (nearly the same width as the cigar shaped base). In addition, as it reached the tree line to my left again I looked back out my driver's side window and noticed it seemed to have a rectangular chunk missing from the top half of the craft around the midpoint.

Overall, the craft seemed to be composed of very strange edges. The missing chunk from the middle of the craft had very precise geometric edges, as did the blocky "tail fins". They were not really smoothed out in any way. I could not accurately see the front of the craft because the bright green diamond light obscured it.

When I got home I started to doubt myself as I drew the object I thought I had seen since it kind of resembled a plane, just without wings, blockier in design, and a chunk missing in the middle. In addition, when I looked up the area on Google maps, I noticed that Eagle's nest airport was very close by. So there is a mild possibility my sleepiness during a late night drive may have hampered my ability to observe accurately.
