large red lights hovered above dark field, then in the sky looked like star w/red-twinkling lights, saw space-ship thru binoculars

Saturday 9/7/02 at 8:30pm.. I was driving with my 9 year-old daughter, down a dark country road (Chandler Road) in Mt. Juliet, TN (near Nashville). We saw some large red lights (about the length of a school bus) hovering above the trees over a field. We were unable to see the body of the craft because it was so dark. I spotted it for about 5 seconds before I drove on past it. Then it had ascended high into the sky extremely fast according to my daughter. My daughter had kept her eye on it the entire time until we got to her dad's house about 10 minutes later. (I was unable to because I was driving). When we arrived she pointed it out to me. To the naked eye it looked like a very bright star but red lights were twinkling. We showed it to her dad also. Through binoculars I saw a space ship. It was a grey craft with a roundish-octagon shaped flat bottom with flashing red lights, and a domed top.. it was floating/hovering in the same general area for about 1 hour. Her dad video taped it but he didn't have a tripod and the zoom is not as high-powered as the binoculars but he will submit it for your evaluation of it.
