Duration:15-20 seconds
I sighted a long series of lights west of Louisville Ky.

On 11/16/99 I was driving eastbound on I-64 about 15 miles west of Louisville Ky. when I noticed a series of lights north of me. The lights where traveling from the west to the east at a slow rate of speed(it resembled a blimp landing). The lights looked like they were 1/4 to 1/2 a mile away about 30 degrees up 500 to 700 feet above ground. There was a bright light on the east side with what looked liked a long series of bright and dim lights the length of it aprx. 100 to 150 feet long. The trail lights wasn't like a trail from a comet it had distinct shape and it was not hazey like a comet trail. It was rectangular in shape long and thin band(resembled a banner on a computer). The back of the object was slightly higher than the front aprx. 30 degree angle from west to east. As the light's drifted into the tree line the lights changed to a reddish orange color than went behind the tree line. After I top the hill the lights were gone. I watched the light's for about 20 seconds. Please feel free to contact me if you need more information.
