Location: Potsdam, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:10 to 15 minutes
Bright light splits into three

It was about 9:15pm when I was driving down a highway with very little traffic. I remember that it was a very clear night and you could see a lot of the stars in the distance. As I was driving I noticed a very bright light simply flash off to the right of me, in the distance. At first I though it was the light on a cell phone tower, however the bright flash diminished into a small object that began to move. The object looked like a bright star that would appear and disappear several times. I kept watching the object while still driving. Suddenly it disappeared for a few seconds and then reemerged as a bright light that split into three other moving lights. The three objects moved across the sky in different directions and then simply stopped and moved back in the direction they came from. At that point I began to lose track of them because I was driving into a well-lit town, so it was hard to see anything in the sky.
