UFOs at the Cumberland River Edge.

My friends and I sat at the edge of the Cumberland River and watched the stars above, and also looking at the skies (sic. sky's) reflection in the water.

No star had a reflection in the water but one. I attempt to seek the star creating the reflection. To my slight right on the opposite bank we were sitting, one of the stars begins to shift oddly in the sky and I immediately let my two friends know that one of the stars was not a star.

We kinda freaked out a bit because its flight pattern was abnormal from what we generally are exposed to in the sky. Plus we just learned something! As it reached the near edge of the other side of the river, we got a decent look of the lights. (Well, any view is a decent look.) It was, oddly enough, the shape of a Mercedes Benz symbol minus the circle. All I could explain it as is just three streaks of light coming from one point in the sky as it settles above the trees. It sat there for a while, and then it just went up until it was out of our view. After that, three more followed suite. All were the same shape.

There was one of the same shape to our left higher than the others. As time went by, it descended down and just stood still. Felt like we were being monitored, but just slightly. We kept a visual on it the minute we saw it. It stayed with us the longest out of all.

About 1:30, we see one of them descend behind the trees with its lights shining brighter and closer than before any of the others. No more were seen afterwards. The sky was quickly covered in clouds around 3:00.
