Low flying UFO sighted in the Kendall Florida Area

While driving down a street next to a dimly lit park, we noticed a bright red "flair-like" light in the sky. At first, it had a sort of tail like a comet, but it faded away. The light continued to "glide"forward through the sky till it slowed down (almost to a hault) and split into 3 red lights, but a less intense red. The first object continued on the same path, but the other two stayed behind to form a triangle and became a white halogen light. The two lights that were left behind aligned parellel to each other. Those two lights began going up and down (like the cylenders of an engine) and dissapeared into space as the first light (which was still red)continued on the same path and dissapeared into the sky as well. Shortly after the sighting, when the car was parked and the key was out of the ignition, one of the windows was left down. Out of coincedense, the passenger pushed the button for the window to go up (without the key in the ignition)and the window rolled up. To our surprise, all of the windows were operating with the car completely off. After a minute or so, the windows stopped (almost like the battery died). After we had dinner and came home we were observing the sky around the area where we previously sighted the UFO. There was a military search plane (we know this because one of us had served in the army) circling the same area we had seen the object an hour earlier. It circled around a few times, almost like it was trying to find the UFO. We assumed they must have picked it up on radar because it seemed to be flighing low. It was very strange.
