I am being 100% genuine when I type this.
I was driving East on I-80 tonight, heading back to Lincoln. I went past the York / Waco area around 8:30 and I noticed something in my rear view mirror.
Nobody was driving in my immediate area. There were a few cars maybe a half mile ahead and the same behind me.
At first I thought it may have been a glare from a light or something like that, but after multiple mirror checks for many miles, I was sure that it wasn't a glare.
You can see a few stars when driving on I-80, but they aren't very bright, but this thing was. It was as if you had a star, but 3x the size of ones you see in the sky.
The light kept moving to the left and right, up and down, almost like it was flying, but, again, it was lit up and it never got any smaller as I drove down the road.
I kept trying to rationalize it to myself because I started freaking out a little bit. I had gotten all the way to Crete and I was still seeing it, mirror or no mirror.
I hit the rumble bars like 5 times because I kept looking at it. Every time I looked, it was still up in the sky, moving around in an unorganized little pattern.
I was like, maybe one of the cars behind me has like a glowing kite thing that they're flying out of their sunroof? No way, what about the underpasses?
A drone? Wait a minute, 75mph? How would it be keeping up? I'm not saying it was following me, just that it never seemed to get any smaller from my vantage point.
I still have no clue what it was. By the time I got to the 77 exit, I was just trying to focus on the road and not get myself killed trying to figure this thing out.
It wasn't an airplane, it wasn't a helicopter, and it wasn't a drone. The movements I saw don't match up with those things. It was something else.
Has anyone else ever seen anything in the sky that they couldn't explain? Not just something you aren't aware of, but something that just didn't make any sense?
You can laugh at me now if you want.
