We were driving on the highway where the sky is completely visible with no trees. All the way towards the right, a bright light the size of an airplane and as bright as a planet suddenly appeared. When I saw it at first I yelled,
"Look a shooting star!" Quickly I realized it was not a star. Most of the stars were hardly visible from light pollution. It didn't flicker or flash like stars, planes or towers. After about 1 second, it split into two and one light went up and one went down creating a sideways Y. This was a perfect triangle formation. In about 1/3 of a second it completely disappeared. When the light divided into two they were equally as bright and big as the original one was. They disappeared in perfect sync, down to the millisecond. I'd estimate it was about 1/2-1 mile away. During the event, I didn't feel anything other than amazement and awe. After the event me and my father were at a loss for words. We tried to reason it off as a meteor or something logical, but nothing fit correctly. Even my mother who is very educated in astrology didn't know how to explain it.
