We saw circular balls of light moving in circles, and a craft overhead that was NOT an airplane

My boyfriend and I were going to Jasper for the weekend. He is 25 and I am 23. We left Red Deer, AB and were driving towards Edmonton. We got about half ways towards Edmonton and ahead of us we could see what we thought at first was an airplane with lights. It was dark out so we couldn't really see anything but the lights at first. We got a bit freaked out then because it was not moving. It was just hovering in one spot and that is when we realized that it was not an airplane or a helicopter or anything. As we kept driving it was directly above us, and it looked light a big circle with lights on it, and from the lights we could see beams of light coming off of them that looked a bit like the Northern Lights. We kept driving and then in the sky out my right window we could see a circular ball of light that was bluish-green. The ball of light would divide and split into 4 balls of light and the 4 balls of light went around in a circle and then combined in the middle again to make one ball. Then it would go all over again. I don't know exactly what this was, but I do believe in UFO's now, which for me to say, it obviously happened because I used to be very skeptical of UFO's.

((NUFORC Note: Advertising lights?? PD))

Addition to our sighting

To Whom It May Concern, I am the person who entered the information over a year ago for this siting that is already on your site. I was reading other reports and noticed this one that I had wrote and noticed on the bottom that it said "advertising lights?". There is no doubt in my mind that was we saw was NOT advertising lights. I know what advertising lights look like and these lights had NO origin from the ground. Also, this was right in the middle of a farmer's field. There is no way that what we saw were advertising lights.
