Duration:15 min
2 very bright balls of light dancing. The brightest light I have ever seen.

At approxiamatley 4:30pm on Oct. 4, 2003 while driving West on I-10 about 25 miles before Lafayette, La.. My roomate and I noticed a beam of light coming from the sky which was unusal because there were few clouds in the sky and it was very clear, good weather. This beam of light was a white color and was very distintive like and upside down V. This beam would sort of fade in and out, we watched the beam for about 5 min or so. Just amazed how it would fade in and out . And of course we joked about it being a UFO. Within in another min. or so a very bright ball of light appeared and it just appeared from nothing. It moved left to right, up and down, it moved pretty rapidly but it would just go a short distance. It was sort of like dancing. I know that sounds crazy. At this pint, we knew that it was not a plane, helicopter, weather ballon, or any of the other 100 or so things we tried to make it to be. It was beautiful. And then it just disappeared behind a small cloud. Now I was jumping up and down in the seat telling my friend i needed my camera. Got the camera and waited. Another few minutes passed and we kept and eye onthe cloud we last saw it and sure enough it reappeared and there were 2 of the balls of light. Same size and shape. I can't tell you how big they were. But to me and my friend they looked like the same. Very bright white balls of light. These 2 did exactly what the first did. Moving left to right, up down, and bouncing, dancing, like i said it was strange. I'm 35 years old and have always been a believer in UFO's i've just never actually seen one until now. If any one has seen what i'm describing I know how you feel. I am a courier driver i live in the Chattanooga area I drive from 1:00am to 8:00am M-F. I have 2 years of college in the study of Criminal Justice. My roomate is 36 and is a dispatcher for a local trucking company and has been a Over the road truck driver for 5 years in the past. The whole experience lasted aprox. 15-20 min. Thank you.
