Objects over Lyon Co., KY. 8/22/2011

On Monday, August 22, 2011, @ 8:47 PM, in Lyon Co., KY, I was standing outside with my daughter as she was preparing to leave in her car. We noticed what appeared, at first, to be a plane moving Northeast to Southwest. Approximately 90-seconds into our observation, it abruptly changed course, going Southwest to Northwest for about another 60-seconds. We had continued to watch it, because we noticed a very bright white light that would pulse on and off while two, equally bright, red lights did the same at opposing intervals. Although there were several other lights, identifiable as planes, also moving in other areas of the sky, we could not make out a definite shape of this object, even when it moved closer as it changed direction. This first object disappeared after a time, but not into the horizon, it just seemed to be gone. While trying to locate it again, retracing the path it had taken, we noticed three other small orbs of light had appeared. They did n! ot pulse or waver in color or intensity, were star-like white, one being brighter than the other two. Or, perhaps it was closer making it appear brighter, it was hard to tell. They appeared to be higher in altitude than the first object, but no higher than Cessna, or light aircraft, can fly. They had no sound and disappeared, as oddly as they had appeared, after approximately 2 minutes. The brightest light, and one of the dimmer ones, moved at a fair pace from Southwest to Northeast. The third light, a short distance from the other two, moved at a same pace from South to North. (Directions approximated.) It was as if all of these objects simply went dark or vanished.
