Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes approx
My roomate and I were out early mending a horse fence in a very rural area, very dark and quiet. We were the only witnesses as far as we know to see three small bright lights and one huge "mother ship" object--we knew what we were seeing was not normal, and it kept us in awe for it's entirety.

On a very clear, dark night, while mending a horse fence, my roomate and I had our attention actually taken off our job at hand, as we both focused on and witnessed the same event together as a pair, but individually as spectators. It was quite apparent that these bright, round, lights hovering in the southeast on the horizon (we were looking North) were different from anything we had ever seen before, and we immediately knew what we were watching was paranormal. Three bright, non-flashing, hovering lights that stayed in a tight formation non-moving for approx 5 minutes, which then took off in a tight formation at a high rate of speed in one direction, and then another, always staying together in a tight unit. Then after approx 10 minutes had passed, they zipped along VERY fast as if "done" with their task, in a straight line to the West, and Many miles across the horizon, shrouded in what looked like fog, they actually met up with a HUGE sphere-shaped object which we only noticed upon their arrival to it, because it seemed to turn on "headlights" in order to travel onward into the West. This HUGE object seemed to "take in" the three bright objects immediately, and started moving at a slower, more lumbered speed and was so big and had so many spot type lights, that it lit up the fog enshrouding it in such a large area around it, that you could tell approximately how large it was, and how slow it moved compared to these tiny lights. I will never forget it.
