A large very fast moving craft. It had four bright white lights in a row angled downward. At first the lights looked like there were straight across, but then they looked like they were angled downward. The craft appeared to be spinning.

Last night as I was driving up Malvern Ave, entering Hot Springs, I saw appear from my left a very bright object. It was on the Horizon line that is defined by the sky and mountian. There is a radio tower on the horizon to the left and the Hot Springs Tower to the right up on the Mountain. This is the flight path for planes going to the airport, and I always see planes going up and down between the tower and the radio tower. Also on the mountian above there are cars that drive along the mountian, and sometimes for a few seconds you can see the headlights or tail-lights, and it looks weird if you you don't know what it is. But this was not a plane or a car. It was twice the size of a plane, and I was a few miles away. If I held up my thumb at arms lenth, my thumbnail was about the same size as what I saw. As the object flew from the radio tower toward Hot Springs tower it flew very fast. It made it in about five seconds. And when it was by the Hot Springs tower, which glows with a few orange window lights, and looks like a UFO at night. It hovered a few seconds and was about the same size as the lights in the windows of the tower. It was a little bit away from the tower, and I could see the four bright window lights twinkling. The craft appeared to be spinning. I have seen simular objects appearing just over the mountians. Once I saw the object and the four lights kind of angled downward. As I looked at it a few seconds, long enough for me to think "I know that's no plane!" it blinked out.
