i was 19 at the time going to work at coal mine on the night shift. this is a high energy location with 10 coal mines and 6 powerplants. what i saw that night was never told to anyone but my family. I do not believe in lights in the sky cause you can see them every night,and if it blinks or its colored it an aircraft get real.the first thing i notised that was out of place was 2 bright lights, thy appeared to be dust to daun lights over a farmers field . at this time i was 2 miles away on the highway knowing their was no houses there,as i drove this road every night. this was at night and as i turned left off of the highway they were on my right side appr. 70rds away and 100ft high. this was a still summers night and their was no sound,just 2 stationary lights that didnt belong.their was a guy stopped on this road watching them and asked what the hell is that. i was so curios itold him i didnt know but i had to get closer. as i crossed the farmers fence he said i am getting the hell out of her,quote. as i was halfway to the lights appr. 40yrds from being under them the lights went out showing windows appro. 20 around an egg shaped looking object. at this time they started to move upword slowly as if they knew i was getting too close .rose approx. another 30yrs and started flying south with no sound at all.i followed in the car for 4 mi. and could keep up, aprpox 60 mi an hr. as i approahed the river bottoms the roads ran out, but i obseved the inside lights went out, the one bright light came back on approx 3 mi. away and they went down in a deselite area where their is no roads.the two crafts flew like only a chopper could fly but made no soundwhatsoever. what i saw that night was not a light in the sky, as i was 50yds. away. these crafts were approx. 100 ft. in dia. and flew with no sound whatsoever.as a retired military guy, i dont know too this day of anything that flys with no sound.that close. this was not a light in the sky,it was a close encounter
