I saw what seemed to be 5 separate lights in the eastern sky. One bright light and 4 smaller and less bright lights. The lights were in a "V" shape equadistant from each other with the bright light at the point of the "V". The lights were moving together at the same speed. As I watched the lights moved north at a slow rate of speed and the "V" seemed to stand on one "wing" as the lights turned east from the former northern heading. As I watched all lights moved together and kept the same relative spacing. The lights were fairly low in the sky and if connected would have outlined a fairly large craft. I would estimate several hundred feet per side.

5 lights in a "V" formation (appx 90degrees), one bright light at the point of the "V" and 2 smaller less bright lights on either side. The lights were low on the horizon and were moving slowly in a northerly direction, then turned and began to move in an easterly direction. In executing the turn it was as if the lights were connected as the lights seemed to execute a steep bank to the right with the "V" seeming to stand on one leg as an airplane would to make a sharp turn. The lights did not change speed as they turned. The lights were white and round. The distance to the lights I would estimate at a maximum of one mile The size of the "V" I would estimate to be several hundred feet per leg. I could not see any connection between the lights. There was no sound associated with the sighting
