Location: Athens, AL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangular shaped craft with three dimmly lit lights on the bottom of it and It was following something on the interstate going south.

Me and my girlfriend and our two freinds were watching a movie one night and I decided to take a smoke break. I was about half way done with my smoke and for some reason I looked straight up in the sky and just as I did I saw a very vivid triangular craft. It was very cloudy and overcast that night. The only way someone else could have seen It was if they were looking straight up. Anyway, it was a very large craft and it was moving very slowly following the interstate I-65 going south like it was following something on the Interstate. It had three distinct circular lights on the bottom of the craft which was flat. The craft was black in color. I could not say for sure how high up this thing was but If it would have been a jet It would have shook the place at that altitude. I remember hearing a lot of traffic (tractor trailers) on the interstate that were heading south. This thing whatever it was, I believe was following trucks on the interstate for some reason. Maybe Military? Transport of nuclear waste? After I spotted it I yelled at everyone to come outside and look and by that time it had dissapeared into the clouds. This thing had no flashing lights on it anywhere. Just the three dimmly lit lights on the bottom. I saw two or three aircraft in the area to the south but I never saw the craft again. Like I said it was very overcast and this thing was using the clouds as cover. The clouds were very low to the ground that night. It was only visible for about 15 seconds due to the cover of the clouds. I dont think this was a little green man ship. My thoughts are It was top secret military craft that was watching or protecting something that was being transported on the interstate in tractor trailer trucks.
