Jackson, Georgia A String Of 10 Lights Hovering

Posted: August 15, 2008

Time: Evening.

Location of Sighting: Barnett Bridge Road.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 10
Shape of objects: Unknown.

Full Description of event/sighting: I and a friend were traveling in my car and came to a stop sign at a "T" intersection in Jackson, Georgia USA. It was very dark as we were out in the country and there were no street lights within miles. When we stopped at the intersection both of us looking through the front windshield noticed a string of large, bright round lights hovering just above a stand of pine trees that were approximately 70' in height and about 50 feet away. We counted 10 lights in all and they were spaced approximately 20 feet or so apart. Just below each of the larger lights was a smaller light that was either strobing or flashing. We couldn't see any type of craft(s) so didn't know if the lights were attached to one object, or whether they were separate objects. Our first inclination was that these were helicopters. I rolled down my window to see if I could hear anything but there was no noise coming from whatever the lights may have been attached to. My friend then got out of the car to see if he could identify what they were.

He then jumped backed in the car, spooked, and asked me to "get us the hell out of here!" So I took a right hand turn and we sped away. After going a few miles down the road our curiosity had gotten the best of us and we decided to turn around to go back to see if the lights were still there. Upon returning to the intersection where we saw the lights we noticed they were still right where they were when we had left a few minutes prior, in the same position. We stopped for a few seconds to look at them again and suddenly all 10 lights rotated to face us in the car. At this point both of us were freaking out and I said: "Whatever it is it must be one ship with 10 lights". Then, all of the sudden, the lights took off from a standstill at such a speed that within literally 1 second they were past the horizon.

As the lights sped off they separated, and were probably miles apart by the time they were dots on the horizon. Later that evening, after telling all of our friends and family about what we had seen, we called the radio station to see if any others had called in about the lights. The person at the station said that no one else had reported seeing anything and that what we had seen was probably weather balloons. Since when do weather balloons travel at such speeds?

Additional Information:

Brian, I use Photoshop all the time so put together an image that looked almost exactly like what we saw. The lights were lined up above the trees just like
this for about 10 minutes or so before they suddenly sped away at a speed difficult to comprehend. If you need a pencil sketch or diagram let me know
and I'll be more than happy to provide you with that.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
