I too had a close encounter of the third kind in sout central Arkansas. In the summer of 1999, my car was tracked by a 25-30 ft. round,
white/luminous ufo that was traveling in the opposite direction just above the treeline and reversed 180 degrees when we passed it, tracking us at the
precise speed we were driving. It was about three-four times the size of my car. It had multi-colored lights that rotated at the bottom and it made
no sound. After about five minutes it quickly flew away at a sharp angle in the opposite direction. This was at night, on the highway stretch
between Fordyce and Hampton, Arkansas. Very remote, no traffic.
I live in Arkansas. That's not the only experience I've had, and they've all occurred in Arkansas. There is indeed some strange things going on
here, a "hotbed" if you will. You said what you saw "hovered." To my knowledge, meteors don't hover. Could it have been ball lightening? It
sure sounds like a ufo. How big was it? I've heard of these small unmanned ufos they call drones I think, but it sounds like it was pretty big if
it illuminated the yard.
Interesting experience. There is an Arkansas MUFON chapter, you should report it to them.
