Last night at 9:08 CST just a couple miles east of Salina Kansas on highway I70, I saw some unexplained lights. There were 2 lights in the sky that looked like 2 very bright stars, then all the sudden they split into 4 lights each and flashed or pulsated about 4 times, each time moving across the sky a little more, then disappeared, sky was black, then the 2 sets of 4 lights appeared and started again flashing and moving across the sky. At first it almost looked like when you see a fireworks show, how a large ball of light goes across the sky and then when it reaches so high, it bursts....but these didn't burst, the lights just flashed and moved accross the sky, and then disappeared. Also, about a month ago my son and his girlfriend were on old hwy 40 by Brookville Kansas (about 20 miles from my sighting) and spotted what appeared to be the tale of a very, very large aircraft with a set of verticle lights. It appeared to be turning and they just saw the tail end of it, and then it suddenly flew away at unexplainable speeds (he described it like what is shown on scifi tv programs as going into hyperspeed, where it just flashes and shoots away) and he feels certain there is nothing he's ever heard of existing that could move that fast.

On the show Unexplained Mysteries this morning, one of the sets of lights it showed looked very much like what I saw last night.
