Triangular light formation suspended high in air

Shortly after 6:00 AM, sometime in September of 2006, I was heading east on my way to work along I-40, just north of "Stockyards City" where I-40 turns northeast for a ways before heading back east. I noticed a formation of lights suspended at what I estimated to be a couple hundred yards to a half mile off the ground, about 50~100 yards north of the highway.

I no longer am positive about the exact pattern or number of lights, but what I do remember is either a cluster of three white lights forming a close triangular at what I took to be the tip of the triangle at the east, or else a single white light at the east--either way I took that to be the front of the craft. At what I took to be the rear--the west end--were a row of about five lights, lined north-to-south. They were not uniform in size or shape, that is, three or four were red, with one of these beings smaller than the others, and one other of these lights was white--I don't remember its relative size. Between these two "ends" of the object were other lights, reddish or even a little orange; two or three of them, a little smaller than most of the lights at the rear. As an electrician, I noticed that the quality or type of light emitted from all of these lights did not seem the least bit unearthly; they were certainly not flourescent, a little brighter than what one might expect from normal incandescent bulbs, more like the intensity and quality of shine that one sees with halogen lights.

I was navigating the east-to-northeast curve in the highway while looking at this thing, trying to both stay in my lane and make out an outline of the object. I was not able to see a solid shape--just the pattern of the lights. I told my friend, sleeping in the passenger's seat, to look but he was groggy and not awake enough to understand until we were well past the spot. He did not see anything, and went back to sleep.

I have seen airplanes fly parallel to I-40 on their way west to land at Will Rogers Airport. But (a) they fly much higher than the thing which I saw, (b) their lights flash, this's did not, (c) they speed past even at their higher altitudes fast enough to recognize their movement from my truck, this thing was clearly stationary, (d) the pattern and number of lights did not match what I am familiar with from conventional aircraft--for example, the two or three lights I saw in the middle were spread too far apart north-to-south for this craft to have had a standard airplane shape. (e) from the intensity of the light, it was clear that this thing was far lower than any airplanes. (Again, the lights were neither flashing nor moving, and I noticed dust particles floating through the lightbeams immediately below the sources of light.) While I don't doubt that advanced civilizations may exist which could travel here from their own worlds, I also don't necessarily ascribe what I saw to otherworldly technology. Maybe it was a test flight of some fancy new military plane from the local Tinker Airforce Base. I don't know.
