My boyfriend and I we’re headed is south on Route, somewhere around 10 p.m., just a few miles past Dover Air Force Base when my boyfriend asked me to try and figure out what this thing is on the right side of the road. It was low to the ground (about as high as a water tower), and about as big as a very large water tower. It had three very bright lights that appeared to be shining downward, one on each end of the wing, and one at the nose. It also had flashing red and green lights at the rear, almost like antennas. It was in the shape of a stealth airplane, but it was hovering completely still. I didn’t think to wind my window down, but I didn’t hear a single sound, so it definitely wasn't an airplane or helicopter. It didn’t make any wind either. I thought for sure I would see something holding it up like it was built there, but there definitely was nothing underneath it. Other than the two wings, it almost looked hollow from underneath, but it was hard to tell because the lights were so bright.

We continued to drive up the road a few miles in awe over what we just saw when we decided to turn around and go back to look at it again, but it wasn’t there anymore. We then turn back around heading south again, a few miles past where we had seen it the first time, we saw it again but it was farther away and a little bit higher this time and it was moving slowly. Still no wind coming from it. I tried to video tape it but because it was dark the only thing you can see were the lights. We pulled off a side road so that we could watch it. It moved like a drone going forward and sideways very smoothly. It was traveling away from us at the speed of let’s say maybe a helicopter until we couldn’t see it anymore.

We got back on Route 1 headed South again. I started to notice other blinking lights much higher in the sky. They weren’t stars by any means and there were a lot of them! There weren’t any clouds in the sky and it was a crystal clear night. All the blinking lights seem to be headed East toward the ocean. I continued to see these blinking lights all over the sky our entire drive to Ocean City, MD.

At first we thought maybe it was a lookout tower of some sort when we first saw it, but there definitely was nothing holding it u, and again it was no longer there when we came back. We also thought it would make sense if it was something from the Air Force Base, but it did not fly like an airplane or a helicopter and there was definitely no air flow from it. And then seeing all the other blinking lights in the sky heading out towards the ocean definitely made it clear that this was nothing out of the ordinary! I am completely sane, and no, i don't do drugs.
