Wright City, Missouri 21:45PM July 4, 2010 Strange String of Lights That Stayed Lit Roughly 1 Minute in Sky

While driving home tonight on July 4, 2010, at approximately 9:45PM CST while just driving east along US Interstate 70 just after passing Wright City, Missouri (and before Forristel), we noticed what appear to be a string of lights to the south. The lights were stationary and stretched from the horizon to well above a 45 degree angle in the sky.

There appeared to be a faint string connecting the lights, maybe 30 of them in a line that was crooked at intervals, as though they were being towed by a plane (probably moving south as they appeared stationary).

No it wasnít fireworks. They stayed lit and then with I circled back within several miles they were gone.

I donít believe it was an alien UFO. Candidly while I believe in the possibility, I donít believe in the probablity, but am curious if any one else saw it and know what it is.

My parents were with me and they saw the same.
