|Blue light, split into smaller lights in triangle.
I had just picked up my vehicle from my friends house on Zebulon Rd. at about 10:25, and I was driving down Buckley's Creek road when I noticed a strange blue light in the sky.
I slowed down my vehicle to about 35 mph so that I could look at it more closely. It appeared to be at the same height as a jet, but the object was hovering and I have never seen an aircraft with cobalt blue lights.
After about 10 seconds of watching it, the blue light split into three smaller lights in a triangular formation, hovered for a few more moments and began to travel slowly towards the right.
After about 5 seconds of the slow mobement, it sped up violently and disappeared over the mountaintop. As far as I know, I was the only vehicle on the road at that time.
