Location: Yorktown, IN
Shape: Formation
Duration:~5 seconds
Formation of lights appeared in the sky, dashed away to the horizon.

Low altitude thick cloud cover, heavy humidity. I was outside, having a cigarette with a friend, when to the north/northwest a formation of lights appeared out of nowhere above the treeline, behind the clouds. It consisted of two longer ovals of turquoise blue light parallel lengthwise to each other, and a smaller red oval in between the blues at one end. It hovered more or less stationary for approximately 2-3 seconds, then dashed off to the north/northwest horizon with no evident acceleration at a VERY fast speed. There was no sound during the entire incident.

I saw it appear, then dash, while my friend only looked up in time to see it streak away.

2 other friends were inside the house, and did not witness the event.

It occured in a suburb of a minor midwest city, and even with the low cloud cover, we were far enough away from the city that there was no glow in the sky. We were standing on a back porch, with a fairly bright porch light behind us.
