I drive a truck in the state of Ohio the same route everynight. at first I thought it was a glare of other vehicles through the winshield, but it happened everynight for about 2weeks back in 1998 I knew it was no glare. Then I changed my run to N.C. for about a year, now that I'm back on my run to columbus and back to richfeild oh. I have seen the same vehicles starting last week again. only on one night did I spot two of them running together at a much slower rate but faster than any airplane that i have ever seen fly. The lights on the two together was a constant light moving across the sky. The lights on the much faster flying objects either was the exhaust or the friction of the air because I would see them only when they were about to cross in front, I would catch the glow then you could see them until they disappeared only to be a second or two after they cross infront. I even stopped one night at the location to see if they would cross and they did with no noise, not even after they were gone. no sonic boom or anything( the crickets still chriped as it flew over)approx heading was about a 230-240 degree northwest. no shape could be seen, the lights was a constant white light. I have seen some exotic planes before and their performance but none could compare to the speed that these vehicles were travleling at(NONE).BACKGROUND- Cpl,USMC 1987-1991 specops communications. if you need more info just email me
