Location: Hopkinsville (I-24), KY
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Lights near I-24 mile markers 80-77.

I was traveling home from work, west bound on I-24, around 5:40pm, and around mile marker 80, or so, I saw 2 large lights in the sky to my left. They were bigger than any plane or stars in the sky, and were just sitting there not moving.

I then saw a 3rd light to the right of those just above the horizon line, and it shot at a 45 degree angle upwards towards the other 2 white lights. The light farthest to the left then seemed to fade like it was going away from me. I lost sight of the lights just before Mile Marker 77 because there is a big heavily wooded hill that blocks the view of the sky just briefly, but after I passed the hill and regained view of the skyline, all 3 lights were gone.

I have seen 2 lights in that same area maybe 6 or 7 years ago while riding home from work on the same road close to the same time and at that time, I thought I was about to witness a plane crash, or something, as the lights were spiraling around each other heading towards the ground, but then stopped just above the horizon. My friend, whom I carpooled with, was driving, and I asked him if he seen those crazy lights just out of his left window, but he did not, and just as i said above once I lost sight of the sky due to the terrain I couldn't find them again.

I came home and told my brother about the lights I saw recently and he typed in west ky ufo sightings and lo and behold he found a story on this sight that was so similar to what I had seen and in the same place that I had to post this in hopes that the previous poster sees this and gains some sort of verification to his story.
