Location: Jacksonville (Interstate 10, heading E), FL
Shape: Diamond
Duration:30 Seconds
Diamond Shape Object Glowing incadescent Yellowish, The object was to our front right hovering just slightly below cloud level. It was about 50 Feet tall and had about 10 beams of white light comming out of the bottom of the lower half of the triangle (Like a skirt) They were about 20 feet long in length and glowed like Florescent Lights. The beams were straight but they came out of the ship at a slight angle. The object moved away and the beams of light disapated as they blew away in the wind.

I think the beams of light were generated by some sort of Ionization from the vehicle. The beams were of almost equal lenghts even though they were from farther up on the ship. The light from the moon on the left of us distracted our vision from the right where the diamond was heading. At that time we pulled over next to an off ramp and tried to see where the diamond went to but it was too late. There were other vehicles on the off ramp backed up. I don't know it they was what I saw! But it was unusual for a off ramp to be backed up at 2:15 in the morning.
