|witnessed an in line formation of bright amber lights appear for a few seconds in the NNE sky halfway up at 19:50. Aprox. 12 with 2 more just below. Called wife, who came out but first lights disappeared but she did witness one appear suddenly in same sky shortly after.
Went out to change to get an oxygen bottle for my blacksmith shop about 19:50 our time. Glanced up at the sky in NNE direction and saw a series of amber lights...manisfesting East to West almost instantly. Two more appeared almost instantly after just below the first line of lights to the lower lefthand end. They were bright amber color, as bright as a 100watt floodlamp at 100 yards. I have a measurement because a neighbor has such a light. They were up for approximately 30 seconds before disappearing instantly. I called my wife as soon as I saw the lights but they were gone by the time she came out. But one appeared at a lower altitude and further West that she did see. Afterwards, there were aircraft lights flashing green,red and white below and on both sides where the ambers were...but not in exact same spot. It has been almost a year to the day, that I saw two lights of the same description in the same area. Where one light appeared and a spark ensued and went down to about 8 O'clock level and grew as bright as the first one. These lasted about 15 seconds before disappearing. Approximately two months ago, my daughter (13) saw lights in the same area and was reported to your website.
