Saw a stationary and noise-free formation of five lights that looked like a Mack Truck in the sky, with two large white lights almost like giant headlights, and three orange ones in a horizontal line exactly between the two "headlights" but below it.

Around early evening, spotted outside window a formation of lights that appeared to belong to one craft. I did not see the actual craft, because I was too afraid to go up to the window directly. I viewed the lights from about 10 feet from the window. There were five lights in all, two giant white lights, and three orange ones in a horizontal line below it, in between the white lights. The lights appeared to be about 500-600 feet in the sky, and maybe 1000 feet from where I was. I live in a partially-wooded area and the object was completely unmoving and made no noise at all and was over these woods. My sister also saw the lights but given she was about 11 and me 14 at the time, we got scared as hell and ran downstairs. I wish I would have watched longer, but when I came back upstairs about 20 min. later the lights were gone. The best way I can describe it is as a giant Semi truck in the sky, just sitting there. I have seen maybe tens of thousands of planes at night, living about 15 miles from a major airport and in the line of the landing approach path, and I have never seen anything even remotely like this, ever. No way it was reflection either, because that would not explain the perfectly aligned orange lights that matched the white ones, and the windows were closed and the lights in my room were off. The white lights were very bright, almost like hi-beam headlights. It made no noise and did not move while I watched it. My sister and I are convinced it was not a plane. It happened over 10 years ago, but I have never forgotten it.
