Extremely bright light in sky near power plant

This sighting occured in rural Alabama on the Chattahoochee River, approximate 20 miles north of Columbus, GA.

From my vantage point at Bartlett's Ferry Dam, a high point were one has 10-15 mile visibility, extremely bright lights were seen hovering in the sky in the approximate vacinity of Ga. Power Company's Goat Rock Hydro-electric plant in Lee Co. Alabama/Harris Co. GA. I observed this light hovering for about an hour before I returned home.

A close relative, an officer for Ga. Power, told me that there were no contruction projects and no bright lights of this type in the area. The lights were too high in the sky to have been from a building anyway, and they were too large and intense to have been from a regular aircraft.
