Three bright lights, one sends down beam over my vehicle.

At about 9pm on 1-20-04 I was traveling on a rural route near Hopewell Twp, N.J.

I first observed two white lights in the southwestern sky. They were very bright and identical in form and intensity. They were also positioned next to each other, which appeared to be odd. They did not seem to be an astronomical body but to be in close proximity of the earth.

After I reached my destination I returned in the opposite direction. The two objects were still positioned in their same location. I then observed a third object moving slowly in the direction of the other two and approaching directly overhead my vehicle. As I watched the object through my windshield it sent a beam of light down directly over me. I then observed a glare off of the hood of my vehicle and the ground surrounding my car. At this point I became extremely frightened, since I am familiar with UFO literature. I repeatedly glanced at the clock in my vehicle to note any lapse in time as I drove on.

Thankfully there was none. The object then flew over without any further incident. I admit that for about one minute I was very scared. I do not recall hearing any sound from this object. However, I was in my vehicle with the windows closed since it had been very cold that evening(about 10 degrees).
