Saw and interacted with a UFO

I really don't know how to report this without sounding like a lunatic, and I've held onto this a long time because I didn't even know you could report a UFO. I learned about it when this UAP stuff came on the news, but I didn't just see a UFO, I kind of had an interaction with it.

I came out of my house to check the mail. I happened to glance up, and right as I did, what I can only describe as a flying saucer materialized from thin air. It had blue panels on it that didn't stay illuminated, but rather moved in a quick marquee fashion. It was the size of an SUV, maybe a touch bigger. It was hovering just above the tree line, I could see it in detail. It was made of a metal that was uncanny in how shiny it was. It saw me seeing it, and I know this sounds insane, but for about 60 seconds it kind of just... hot dogged for me, for lack of a better term. It flew up and down, side to side, diagonal, and it looked really weird when it did it, because there was no jerky movements between the direction changes. It just moved, effortlessly. Then after it was done getting whatever reaction it wanted out of me, it accelerated so quickly it looked like it teleported away. It was just gone in an instant, and left this weird trail of pink and green light, not vapor, but light, just suspended in the air.

I've been holding onto that a long time. I know beyond all shadow of a doubt that what I was a UFO. I just never really knew what to do with the information. I'm a nobody, I didn't think anyone would believe me. But with all this UAP stuff on the news, I just wanted to put what I saw out there. I've never seen anything remotely resembling what I did in videos or anything. The memory of what it looked like, the fine details, it's still scorched into my brain. The closest anything has ever gotten to resembling what I saw was a really bad grainy black and white video from a plane, and that's only because of the weird way it was flying.

But that's my story. I felt it was kind of important to report this now that it's becoming a concern.
