Strange lights fill the sky along I-75, perplexing drivers. But it was actually drones
(04/03/18) - Strange lights filled the sky along I-75, capturing the attention of dozens of people Sunday night.
Several of them pulled over near the Grange Hall Road interchange around 9:30 p.m. to capture video of them.
The array of lights moving in waves through the evening sky were hard to explain. Some even wondered whether Mid-Michigan was being paid a visit from parts unknown.
"At first I started doing a video, then I thought, no way, I need to do a Facebook Live because nobody's going to believe me," said Kaylin Adams, who recorded the strange lights.
She couldn't quite believe what she was seeing herself.
"I saw at first they were blue lights and they were just kind of in line, because they were just kind of waving. That's what caught my eye first," Adams said.
Then the lights started moving in strange ways, like nothing they had ever seen before.
"It changed formations and started changing colors. At one point they all got in line and changed to red, white and blue and then got in a jumbled formation," Adams said.
She didn't know what to think of the sight unfolding in front of her eyes.
"Everyone was saying it was aliens and UFOs. I had no idea, at first. I was just so mind blown," Adams said.
For 24 hours she wondered. Her videos posted to Facebook got hundreds of thousands of views.
Monday evening, she and everyone else mesmerized by the lights got their answer. A local drone company was testing their show over a field on Grange Hall Road used by remote controlled aircraft.
Adams said the reaction to her short video is even more surprising than the light show itself.
"It's been crazy. The one video that I posted has 250,000 views on it," she said Tuesday afternoon. "I'm just so shocked to the reaction to it."
