Unexplained Object seen in LeFlore County, Oklahoma.

On this hot June night I had decided around 11:00pm to drive to my parents home in Summerfield, OK fropm my home in Norman, OK. When I was about 3 miles from my parents house I noticed a bright red ight in the sky. I could not take my eyes from it. I drove faster to see what in the world it was. As I was driving down this road, which is very rural, I noticed a car coming from the other direction. As the car passed under the light their dome light came on. As they neared me they were waving for me to stop. Because I did not know the 3 males in the car and because of the time of night I did not stop. It was a very clear, bright night with hardly any clouds in the sky. As I drove closer down the road and closer to the light my radio went off and wouldn't work anymore. The light was now lower in the sky, about housetop level. It was red and glowed but did not give off light. The light reminded me of the light given off by one of those glow-in-the-dark balls that kids play with. It was elongated and seemed to undulate as it now moved down the road in front of me. A best guess estimate as to size is that it semed to be about 9 feet long and 3 feet wide. It dropped from housetop level to the level of a monster truck cab. Once I was this close I all of a sudden did not want to catch up to it anymore. I slowed down so that I would stay behind it and not catch up to it. It was traveling down the road in front of me. For some reason it now seemed very menacing. The way I can best descibe it is the way you feel when a dog growls at you and you can tell whether it is a dog that will wag its tail and lick your hand if you talk to it or will back up its growl with an attack if you speak to it. It was the bad one. It seemed evil and menacing. As I approached the intersection, it was now down to windshield level of my chevette car. I stopped for the stop sign at the intersection and it kept going without stopping. It is 4/10 of a mile to my parent's house form the intersection. Half of this is! on the paved road and half is a private lane. Where you turn onto the lane the pavement rises into a hill to continue up and around a curve. The light was barely ahead of me when I reached the lane. I was just barely idling along at this point, so as not to catch up with it! While it continued up the hill I turned onto the lane and stomped on the accelerator. I looked in my rearview mirror and saw it behind me. I started honking my horn and as soon as I was in my parent's drivway. The lights in my parent's house came on and they came out onto the porch. I stopped the car and ran as fast as I could into the house. It took my parents a long while to calm me down. My mother and I stayed up for a couple of hours and I finally felt I would be able to go to sleep. I fell asleep on the couch in the living room. There were no electrical appliances or lights anywhere near the couch. At approximately 4am I was literally shocked awake. The hair on my arms stayed upright for all of the next day. When the shock jolted me awake and I woke up I saw the light at the corner window of the living room as if it were looking in at me. At first I was so scared tht I couldn't even get my vocal cords to work then I was screaming for all I was worth. My parents ran into the room, turnng on lights as they made their way to the living room. The light seemed to dissapate and disappear. I stayed awake till it was daylight and as soon as it was morning left to return back to Norman. I have never driven alone in that part of the county again at night and refuse to do so.
