Location: Ainaro (East Timor),
Shape: Unknown
Duration:45seconds
There were three to four evenly spaced lights approx. 3 to 4 feet in diameter, no craft visible, no sound.

While serving as a UN CIV POL(Peace Keeper) in East Timor at the approx. Month and approx. Date I observed 3 to 4 round lights approx. 3 to 4 feet in diameter suspended over a group of trees as I was driving my Land Rover. I was leaving for the Capitol city (Dilli) and it was darkness to dawn (just starting to get light). As I drove over the town's winding,dirt roads I observed the lights over trees approx. 75meters from me. At the time I thought it peculiar because the whole town had no electricity due to the civil war. The only electricity in the town was at Civ Pol headquarters and with the Military at their headquarters outside town. I attempted to follow it, however it moved silently away.I moved toward it as fast as I could but it vanished from my view approx. 200meters from the point I first observed it.
