Shape: Light
Duration:3-5 minutes.
Four red sequenced blinking lights in a diagonal bar formation sighted in Kentucky.

One night while leaving a late night event I sat in the passenger seat while my boyfriend drove us across a deserted stretch of highway. I leaned my head against the window and caught site of one small red light hovering over a distant mountain. The red light blinked four times and then a diagonal bar consisting of four other red lights would light up too. This only happened on every fourth blink.

This pattern continued several more times but I didn’t alert my boyfriend because I was unsure about what it was. As we drove around the mountain, I finally decided to alert him to what was there but because of his position in the driver’s seat, he was unable to see it. I strained to see the lights but could only do so for another minute or so. Even though I knew I was looking at the same point in the sky, the lights stopped blinking entirely and soon, it was out of sight.

This was in a familiar area that I’ve taken often so I am sure this was no type of tower and it didn’t resemble any type of jet or other aircraft that I’ve ever seen. It may have been moving but due to our changing position and the winding road I was unable to tell for sure. I haven’t seen the lights since but I am sure I saw it this night because it lasted several minutes and was very distinct.
