TRIANGLE FORMATION LIGHTS OVER CHURCH ANKENY, IOWA

We were driving along the highway at 2 a.m. on a Saturday morning. We were driving a 2001 Ford Taurus. I looked to my left and there was a church on the lower level street. I then looked above the church and saw what looked to be about 50 to 100 feet in the air, three golden lights in a triangle formation hovering and rotating counter clockwise. After a few seconds of witnessing this strange phenomenon, I saw grey spheres begin to form around the lights, and I started to fade in vision and found myself looking at the floor of the car.

The driver and passenger assumed it would be a good idea to instead of stopping the car to drive to the nearest exit and get on the opposite side of the highway to get a closer look. By the time we came to the other side of the highway, the lights were gone. All three of us got out of the car and tried to collect ourselves. I looked to the parking lot and I saw an SUV pull into the parking lot of the church with the light! s off, and what looked like a husband and wife get out.

The husband had a video camera but the lights were gone.

Also, on the highway there was a man who seemed baffled at the incident as much as we did. There were no other cars on the highway.

We then drove home with no other suspicious activity.
