Driving north on md 124 at mid-morning. sky clear, no other traffic on the road. my wife and i crested a small hill and observed a red light approximately 100 feet in front of our car hovering approximately 5 feet above the road. the object stayed ahead of the car, then descended closer to the road and hovered there before rapidly accelerating to the right and up at about a 60 degree angle and into the sky. my wife observed the orb as having very well defined edges. i saw red radiating rays of light emitting from the well defined edges of a red orb. total time of observation was approximately 8 seconds. we asked each other if we had seen the orb, and confirmed we had. i noted the time and location of the observation and looked for any possible reflections or other possible sources for the red orb. i noted nothing unusual about the road itself, or the grass/trees along the road. we continued to drive in silence, not quite comprehending what we'd seen. we independently recorded our observations.
