|long row of lights with red light under, hovered, flew to west, dropped down below tree level, popped back up and flew faster than a nm
as my girlfriend and i (both 50+yrs) were driving home at 10:10 PM we saw a very bright light low in the sky, we turned on to the last road home and saw the light again as we were behind trees and farm houses for a mile or so. the light hadnt moved, it was stationary. then as we got closer the object was about the size of a quarter held at arms length, it started to move to the right slowly at first then very quickly until we couldnt see it, it had disappeared behind a line of trees which make up a huge woods. we continued driving for another mile and all of a sudden the light went straight up and started coming back towards us quickly. i pulled over and got out of the car to look at it. as it went by about 2 miles away i could see a long row of lights and one tiny red lid underneath. it was VERY COLD (0 degrees) and WINDY but i managed to get a couple poor quality pics. it then slowly veered away from us and i drove as fast as i could to follow it. i could not keep up so i pulled over and got out of the car one more time and then heard a very loud roar which turned out to be a jet of some sort that flew righ over my car fairly low. it had all the running lights i would expect that blink. the object we saw had no blinking lights. the jet followed the same direction as the object but much higher and to the left of it. they both continued flying away from us until out of sight. i called the local airport, they were not interested but gave me the FAA number which i called and that lady was not too interested either. i offed to send the photos but she said dont bother and have a nice day.
