There were intensely bright lights about the height of stadium lights in a place where no stadium existed.

I am a retired military officer, trained in both intelligence and contracting. I do not make any conclusions about things until I have reviewed them as thoroughly as possible. This incident was particularly unnerving, though. I was driving home from shopping at an all night supermarket and noticed some very bright lights ahead about the height and intensity of stadium lights. That location did not have any such lights so I presumed some may have been added. The night was very dark - I don't recall if it were overcast or just dark, but I could not see anything but this panel of lights in the distance. As I neared the lights, which were just barely to my left and very high I looked out my window and tried to see them better. When I looked up it seemed as if I were looking at the bottom of something, but I couldn't tell because it was so dark. I could not even make out a shape; I only could see this row of lights and darkness behind them. I drove by very slowly with the window down. No noise and no movement came from it. I decided to come back the next day to see why/where lights had been erected. I drove to my home in the town up the road. As I drove up the cross street to my street I was shocked to see these same lights moving very slowly up my street, perpendicular to my car. They were about 20 feet in the air; they clearly were not on the ground. I stopped the car, opened the window and turned off the car lights and engine. I watched these strange lights go to the end of my street, across the street I was on, and continue over the field on the other side. The object produced no sound at all the entire time I watched it. I was totally spooked by this time and drove into my garage as quickly as I could. The next day I went back to where I thought lights had been erected and found nothing but an empty field with a few trees. Strangely enough, three months later I came down with cancer. Years later I was watching a UFO report where an entire town sited a UFO. They cont! acted a nearby air traffic controller who could not see the UFO on radar, but could see it with his naked eyes. The description the controller gave of the lights and the representative drawing showing the orientation of the lights were identical to what I saw.
