Shape: Disk
Duration: 11:00-11:20
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
3 unidentified aircraft spotted on highway

I had just gotten done playing at a wedding gig and me along with my quartet was talking with each other while I was just looking out of the window of the car. I was in the back seat of the car on the right side.

I love looking a star formations and consolations but I noticed an extremely bright star. then i thought maybe it was a planet. I told my friends to look at how bright this str was. it was stationary I believe. we all kept looking to debate on whether it was a star or a planet. I bet that it was a planet, anmd the driver of the vehicle thought it was an airplane tower, we all were looking to see a pole and as we drove closer( by the way it was on a highway 285 in Marietta, south I believe) we noticed it had 3 lights i think 2 white ones on either side and on e red in the middle. I was amazed becuase I knew no US aircraft could remain stationary like that. it moved sowly and later as we were passing it we noticed a second next to it. the two were flying slowing near each other.

The Aircraft weren't close enough to really see a shape but I believe it must've been a saucer considering the position of the lights. we kept driving and then I saw another one a few up the highway. that was too akward for 3 planes to be that close to each other.

I kept staring at the objects and later disregarded them, but still thinking about why I would even mistake an aircraft for a star. I've never done that and seems highly unlikely. I didn't believe it to be a military aircraft, because that would be too blunt for the military to fly 3 aircraft in the same location for everyone to see. but I really am not sure,

I just hope someone else saw this besides my quartet and I to verify it.
