Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Myself and a passenger observed a hovering and moving red ball of light while driving in a rural area.

I was heading southwest on a very rural and wooded road in a small town. I was driving the vehicle and had one passenger, a friend,in the front passenger seat. It was twilight, and the sky was still somewhat light.

We were in a heavily wooded area and all of a sudden to my left, quite high up in the sky, appeared a red ball of light. It looked like a red star, as it was at first, not moving. Upon closer look, it appeared to be hovering. It then dropped what could have been one hundred feet (more or less, as I had no idea how far away it was). At this point, my friend and I were intrigued and I pulled over to the side of the road. Again it hovered, but this time it looked almost as if it was spinning very fast and I noticed a gold tone within the red light.

I put my car in drive and moved forward about 20 feet. The object appeared to be "watching" us! It moved as if following my car, and stopped when i did! I then REVERSED the car about 30 feet, and the object reversed direction, again moving WITH my car! It stopped and hovered when I stopped my car, and continued to follow when i moved my car.

After a few minutes a car drove by from the opposite direction. The object continued to hover, appearing to watch us. Then another car drove by, and happened to be a relative of mine. He pulled over to see what I was doing and say hello, and as I was keeping an eye on the object, it faded and vanished completely. There was no noise of any kind the entire time of this happening, coming from the object.

We continued home without any additional events of this type. I should also mention, it was very hazy and humid but the sky was very clear.
