driving south and saw unusual lights to the left. two lights hovered, blinked in sequence, then a long row lit up. behind,saw the shape of a large (huge) disk with lights on top. It made a lateral and diagonal move very rapidly, then spun, and shot north-northeast.

On November 15, 1998 I was driving southbound on I-35 with my 14 year old son. I noticed two odd lights hovering about 30 to 40 feet above on the other side of the highway. they began to blink in an odd sequence, and I loudly woke my son and pointed at the lights. About this time, a row of lights appeared to the side of the first two ones. they lit up in rapid sequence and then went back out. When this happened, I could see a very large shape behind them, disk or saucer and dull gray, silver. If I were to hazard a guess, the lights dissected the craft in the middle. The craft then made several strange moves, very rapidly diagonally and laterally, unlike anything I've ever seen. As I driving, I told my son to follow it with his eyes. As our car passed it, he reported whirling lights on the top which swirled around fast in the opposite direction they had been, and the craft shot out of sight, extremely fast, headed north- northeast. It might be of note that there was a light fog when I first saw the object. As the trip progressed, it became worse. But at the time, it wasn't so dense as to cloud our vision. We also thought a few miles down the road that we saw another, smaller craft blinking lights, but that could just have been excitement. oh, and the dash lights went out in my car and the radio station went out.
