Large, hovering, triangular shaped object(s) in New Albany, Indiana.

I am very reluctant to post this. I checked the internet just now and so far, nothing on the news. I was driving West on 256 just past I-65. I realize this was relatively close to the Clark Co. airport, but at this height 40-60 feet it would have been crashing and either much too large or much to close to one another. It was not moving. I rolled down the window and slowed to nearly a stop to look and listen. It/they were completely silent, triangular shaped, and 40 feet in length from lights at the points. Lights were orange in color.

What is strange is the fact that just moments before on the North side of 265, just past 65 in Clark County I had seen an extremely bright, white light near the trailer park approximately the size of an Olympic swimming pool (but round in shape) that came from nowhere, lasted maybe three seconds and went out like a switch was flipped.

I pulled over at the Charlestown Road exit to get a look and the hovering object(s) had vanished. I know at least four other cars in front of me saw it too, they slowed down and I could even see a passenger in one car point at it as if to ask, "Do you see that too?" I am quite shaken, and a little sick to my stomach. This wasn't anything remotely resembling any 'normal' aircraft in shape and wasn't like any plane or a helicopter I have ever seen.

Approximately 30 seconds before the events, the radio broadcast of the Big Ten Championship game that I was listening too cut out. I thought it was a broadcast error and turned off the radio. I didn't turn the radio back on for several minutes after the event. The broadcast was back on.

I am a male. Mid thirties. Caucasian. Married. Children. College educated. Employed. I don't care about any kind of recognition, in fact I would prefer none. But I would love an explanation of what I just saw. I will answer questions if you need more info.
