White light followed our car as we drove home from Sarnia to Blue Point

It was the summer of 88 - my mother and I were returning to our house in Blue Point from a night of Bingo in Sarnia. It was late, dark, and we were driving north east on Highway 7, when I noticed a white circular light in the distance. At first I didn't think any of it. We were in the country, it was white and rather small, so I just thought a light on the side of a barn, off in the distance.

As we continued driving, the light never fell behind our car, which seemed really odd to me. If it was a light, we would have eventually passed it and it would have went out of sight, but instead, it continued to keep pace with us. It was then that I asked my mom if she saw the light and she said yes and had been watching it too.

The drive was about 20 minutes and the road was fairly windy, and the entire time, the light continued to travel the same path as we did. It also seemed to bigger, which I assumed meant it was getting closer to our car.

When we got close to our house, we turned left into our neighborhood. It was then that the light came even closer to our car, then moved ahead of us about a block down the street and hovered. It was very low in the sky, almost to the top of the tree line.

By now, we are both scared. We drove down towards it, and made another left onto my street. Our house was two houses on the left. We pulled into our driveway and my mom ran inside the house to get my dad. It was at that point, the light suddenly went from white to several bright flashing colors, yellow, white, red, blue... When my dad stepped outside, the light suddenly shot off at great speed, in a straight line, over our house and out of sight.
