orangeish light pulsing west of hopkinsville, ky on I-24, then 10 miles down the road again

I had just graduated high school and my family and i decided to drive to florida from illinois. while on interstate 24 west of hopkinsville, ky. i looked out the passenger window and noticed an orangeish light (the color of street lights usually on the highway) pulsing in the sky. it was about as high as an average radio tower. i leaned over to my mom who was driving and told her to look, she dismissed it as something out of the ordinary. the object hovered and pulsed for nearly 5 minutes and vanished. about 10 miles later down the intersate, it appeared again the same way is was before and in the same direction. it lasted about 10 minutes this time. my mom saw it before i did the second time and then we realized it was out of the ordinary being 10 miles from where we saw it the first time.
