Location: Reading, PA
Shape: Light
Three bright objects, each made up of at least 3 lights in a horizontal row, zig-zagged slowly and climbed into the clouds.

I initially saw two bright lights to the east of my location. Movement was barely discernable. They appeared to be moving slowly to the WNW. Their direction was erratic, short zig-zag movements both horizontally and vertically (like the etch-a-sketch toy in unskilled hands). The second one (farther away) dropped below my line of sight, I think. I watched the first one until it was about at a 45 degree elevation. Then it disappeared, probably into the clouds. (I couldn't see any stars.) The second one rose back into view and behaved the same as the first until it too disappeared into the clouds. Then I scanned the area and spotted another over the city of Reading. It was quite low and initially blended into the city lights. It too zig-zagged and climbed into the clouds. Each object appeared to have at least three light sources.
