|I noticed 5 amber light in the shape of a triangle moving from east to west.
In July of 1975 my wife was hospitalized in Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Ky. While driving home after a visit I was approximately 2 miles west of Smithland,Ky traveling east on US 60. I noticed five amber colored lights in the shape of a triangle in the eastern sky. The lights were steady glowing and very bright. I slowed to try to determine whether or not they were moving and found they were definately moving from east to west very slowly. I could'nt tell if it was just one object or five separate ones until I stopped my car and got out. It did appear to be one solid object. It also appeared to be very large. I would estimate at least a quarter mile wide at the back part. I continued to observe the object as I drove into the city limits of Smithland. I then turned west on Court Street which is a dead end at the Cumberland River. I stopped the car and continued to watch the lights until they went out of sight behind a woods on the Illinois shore. I found out later that similar objects had been sighted along the East coast around that same time. I was a dispatcher for The Livingston County Sheriff's Department at the time and found that no one else had reported anything that same night. Guess I was lucky to have seen this.
