|Strange lights above the highway on a stormy night.
While driving w/b on Highway 160 out of Las Vegas I saw 2 lights ahead which I thought may have been landing lights on an aircraft. It was very windy and the sky was completely overcast with low clouds. As I drove nearer it was apparent the lights, which looked like white globes, were either stationary or moving very slowly above the highway, and they appeared to move apart as I closed with them. As I passed beneath them, 6 very dim white lights became visible; four in a diamond shape between the globes (closer to the right globe than the left) and then two placed equally distant trailing west. Unlike the two bright lights, the light from the smaller six looked indirectly lit, like distant windows appear in the nighttime. The lights were then blocked from view as we passed beneath them. My wife was with me but was not in the least interested and paid no attention to either me or the lights. Also, on the drive back to Tecopa I was astonished to find my night vision was restored--the halos I'd become used to seeing around oncoming headlights were gone and I could actually see the road ahead as headlights passed. It only lasted a week or so, but man was that a great thing. I don't know for sure that it was associated with whatever it was I saw in the sky, but I do know that my vision immediately after I saw the lights was a whole lot better than before.
I can submit a sketch of the lights' configuration on request, IF I can figure out how to load it into this computer.
