|A 50 yardlong cluster of flashing red ,green,blue,yellow lights,roadside I75,then 1,000 ft above r w.
We were driving home that day from my mother's.Traffic was heavy going north and south on I 75.the weather was clear and sunny,a wonderful day for a drive.So we took the old highway that runs north and south alongside the interstate.The trip was plasent but uneventful untill we crested a hill outside the town of Bera.ky.Looking north I had a clear view for upto ten miles,the golfball water tower of the 75,reststop.what Isaw next made me thankful we went the old road,for I could see miles ahead on the ground close to the reststop and the north bound laines of I75,a huge cluster of flashing lights! thay looked like normal emergency lights,there ware reds yellows greens and blues.I stoped on the hill and pointed to lights an said,honey something bad must have happend,because we were looking at 50 by 15 yards of emergency lights.Now there is a highway overpass next to this rest stop,when we got to the overpass,the sun had turned ornge and was setting behind us,we drove onto the bridge and stoped in the middle setting over N/S I 75.Nothing! I check traffic,it's heavy but both north/south,are moveing briskly,there are a lot of people at the rest/stop,moveing around like ants not even bothering to look up at the two nuts on the overpass.So I shake my head an start to drive down off the overpass.The father down I drive the higher the sky rises in my rearview.I nolonger can see the setting sun,just ornge,pink and blue fill my rearview.I looked over to my sweethart,then back again and there it was with more lights than a christmastree hovering 800 to a 1,000 ft.over the verry bridge I was parked on.At this point I had alot on my mind.What was it?and why only two people out of the hundereds if not thousands of folks on I75 could see it?I know one thing,if thay have that much power thay could do anything thay want.
