MY SONS WERE GETTING READY FOR BED WHEN THEY CALLED ME INTO THEIR ROOM AND ASKED ME WHAT THIS THING WAS IN THE SKY.THE OBJECT WAS STATIONARY IT SEEMED, BUT THE ORANGE LIGHTS MOVED ALMOST INTO A FORMATION, WHEN THE FIRST GROUPING FADED OUT, ANOTHER MOVED IN FROM THE WEST. HEADING EAST. THE 2ND GROUPING WAS SMALLER.THAT TOO FADED OUT AS IT MOVED EAST. NO SOUNDS.

MY SONS WERE GETTING READY FOR BED AND THEY CALLED ME INTO THIER ROOM TO SEE SOMETHING IN THE SKY. THERE WAS A LARGE OBJECT WITH ORANGE LIGHTS. IT SEEMED STATIONARY, BUT THE LIGHTS DID MOVE ALMOST LIKE A FORMATION. AS THE LIGHTS FADED OUT, A SECOUND GROUP CAME IN FROM THE WEST IN A TRIANGLE SHAPE, THEY TOO SEEMED TO GO STATIONARY FOR A BIT AND THEN THE LIGHTS WOULD MOVE AND THEY TOO FADED OUT. THERE WERE NO SOUNDS. THIS SEEMED VERY LARGE SINCE THERE WAS AN AIRPLANE IN THE DISTANCE, THIS WAS NOT AN AIRPLANE. IT WAS NOT A WEATHER BALOON OR STARS. THIS WAS DIFINATELY SOMETHING THAT WAS UNUSUAL. I AM NOT SURE HOW MUCH I CAN HELP, MAYBE YOU CAN HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND THIS,MY CHILDREN SEEM AFRAID ABOUT THIS.
