2 balls of red pulsing light 1 small blinking.Near aep power plant.

I am a printer I was on my way home on us 23 south at 11:30 pm. Between the waste water treatment plant and the aep power plant{both plants are to my right west}. I saw to my left {east} 2 very bright round red lights in the sky with a small white round light in the middle. The lights where moving slowly.The red lights where pulsing and the white light was more of a blinking. The height was low 80-100 feet.Also it was very foggy out and real dark no moonlight, or stars out.I also saw a faint light coming down through the fog mist. It was small at the top and large at the bottom {like a funnel}.Then after 6-10 seconds in the blink of an eye dead darkness the lights went out.The lights where more like balls then aircraft lights. This was close to the freeway and the lights {before they went out},where moving in the direction of the aep power plant.southwest.Also my car started missing running rough.I have not looked at it yet maybee just a bad plug.
