Duration:18 minutes

We were driving Old Route 17 (very dark road) headed west when one of the passengers looked off to the right and saw a very bright light in the distance. The driver was promted to pull over when there was a clearing from the trees. When we pulled over, we noticed an incredible bright light that was very far away but seemed very close. The bright light was of an orange/yellow tint. The object was not moving but rather hovering in one spot. Shortly after the driver noticed the light was dimming. After the light dimmed out it turned a very vivid orange color and began to move very fast. Then as it got further away red lights began to circle the bottom of the craft giving away its shape. It looked like an upside down top. While it was moving away we noticed an airplane traveling directly for the object which was so close that we thought they would crash. Then we noticed three other objects in the sky as the main one got further away. The other three consisted of a very bright white light that blinked inconsistantly in different blinking patterns, all of which were hovering. Once those began to move they also began to change color (mainly red, orange, and yellow). As they got further in the distance we realized that all four objects were traveling in the same direction. After the objects were covered by the trees, we began to travel further down the road when the passenger in the back noticed another object towards the left of the road which was a bright red at first and then changed to an orange color. This light, dislike the others was a clear solid light that clearly changed. At first the three lights on the objects were horizontal to each other, but the further it got and as the color changed it went to a vertical pattern. When we could not see it anymore, we then drove to our distination not seeing anything else for the rest of the night. Strangly while we were seeing all of these objects, there was several planes in the air which were completely different then the other 5 objects we saw giving it a distinct difference between an unknown aircraft and an airplane. This event lasted between 15 and 20 minutes.
