I was 15 years old, it was a summer night about 8:30PM when my mother asked me to go to the store and pick up a wedding/shower present. The store was to close at 9:00PM. This is a small town, so no other traffic on the road, I had all the car windows down and no radio on. I came around a slight right turn that was slightly higher elevation than the road ahead that was straightfor about 3 miles. I noticed 2 groups of lights on my left at about eye level - 2 green and 1 red. They appeared to be crossing the road slowly at a shallow oblique angle. I set my speed to be below the point where I guestimated they would cross the road. Then 1 set of lights sped up and disappeared quickly to my right while the other set seemed to hover. As I approached, the lights "floated" across the road above me at barely above the telephone poles. I pulled off the road and leaned out of the car to get a better look aboe me. It was a large, circular shape dark against the night sky with the lighs clustered in the middle. It floated with no sound like a leaf back in the direction I had come from, then it reversed back to it's original path and disappeared quickly over the mountains with no sound and no apparent acceleration. Even at that age I had an interest in unusual things and was a star gazer from an early age. At this point in history, there were a lot of UFO reports in the north Georgia area. I feel even at that age I was an objective observer.
