Sphere-like object coupled with two bright lights on each side viewed from a distance, Triangular base

AT dusk, driving north on I-65 just south of Shepherdsville, saw at first what appeared to be two bright white lights with a sphere in the middle. At first I assumed it was an airplane, but the lights seemed too bright and too close to the earth and not moving at all. I thought from a distance I saw a brief flash or what looked like a spotlight. As I approached I was able to tell that The lights were not moving at all. I still did not think much of it, until I saw the lights quickly dim and then brighten again as the object darted a short distance to the right and came to a dead spot. At this point, I was close enough to see a vague outline of the object against the slowly darkening sky. Closer, now the object seemed to mimic the classic movie version of a UFO. Strikingly "saucer-like." So much so that I did a double take, a triple take and then looked over at the driver in the next lane who was pointing up with a bewildered look in his face also. As I passed underneath it, I tried to get a closer look through my sun roof only to see a triangular shaped base that was almost reminiscent of military jets, but yet not quite like anything I've ever seen. I have done some research and have not found any known military craft that match what I and the other driver saw.
