Location: Clarksville, TN
Shape: Other
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Multiple cluster of lights (more than eight) in an arc appear momentarily for roughly 30 seconds at night.

While driving home from work, I was nearing the Interstate overpass near Exit 4, just outside of Clarksville, TN (heading into town), I observed a number of lights beginning to appear. Shaped in somewhat of an arc, there were more than 8 of these lights. All white in color, and clustered close together. It almost appeared to be an effect of something breaking through cloud cover. The brightness was intense. The object(s?) did not appear to move as I had pulled over to the side of the road to watch from a stationary vantage point. The object(s?) were stationary during their entire appearance. And just as they had appeared all at once, they "went out" in the same fashion. The direction I observed these/this object(s?) was towards the Fort Campbell, KY side of Clarksville. Although I would guess that the distance was not far enough away to place it on the post. This could have been maybe up to 4 miles away from my position. As to the size, I'm guessing VERY VERY LARGE.
