Set of bright lights close together (as if on one craft), stationary in sky, and then dart southward and disappear.

I was traveling in my vehicle going westbound from Newark, OH to Columbus, OH on route 161. On the freeway, I was near to New Albany. On my left, I would say in the sky West-SouthWest, I saw several bright, white lights that I at first thought could be an aircraft (a plane for instance). Then I noticed that the plane did not move. I then thought perhaps it did not seem to move (to my perception) because it was high in the sky. But, after a short time, it still did not seem to move. The all of a sudden, it quickly darted to the south, and then quickly disappeared from sight. The several lights were very close together, which I thougt would be part of one craft. About five minutes later I saw a second set of bright lights, but in the North-NorthWest area, stationary, and then simply cease (disappear).
