Long overdue report of UFO witnessed at a close range--years ago

Me and a friend were going squirrel hunting and was in his car,as we parked,Cigar shaped object approched us at treetop level, traveling from the East at a very slow speed.

Object projected a very bright light upon us as it hovered overhead. We were extremely close to Object. It had a light in front and several dim ones down sides.

It appeared to be the size of a large bus.

Some sort of strange sound(crackling)from rear when it took off at an unbelievable high rate of speed toward the Northwest.

This is the first time I or my friend have ever reported publicly.

And I haven't a clue why I am doing it now.
