|Our car was stopped in traffic, TN, so-bound I-75, approx 00:30. We saw a tour-bus size, triangle covered in blue lights, pass low over the X-way.
My friend & I were driving south-bound I-75 about 50 miles north of Lake City, TN, between midnight & 1:00 AM on April 24, 2000. Traffic came to a halt. We assumed that it was due to an accident or possibly a construction bottle-neck. While waiting for traffic to move, we saw a tour-bus size triangle (or possibly cone-shaped...it was difficult to determine if it was a cone in profile or a flat triangle) object pass over the x-way, heading in a north west trajectory. The object was completely covered by several royal-blue lights, aligned in rows and all touching one another in a 4-3-2-1 formation, arranged with the row of four at the "head" (or flat side) of the triangle and the single light at the point. The lights came on and went off in sync, lighting the night sky around the object each time they came on. The effect was like a moving, triangle-shaped cluster of large connected strobe lights, as the object appeared and dissappeared rapidly along its trajectory. Several people in the other stopped vehicles rolled down their windows or opened their car doors to better see the object. We were very frightened. I am completing my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. My friend is completing her Nursing degree. Neither of us has seen anything like this before.
