While at work on the Ptld, Maine, waterfront ,at 2a.m I did see bright white lights, 25-45 sec, that vanishedbehind,into a cloud ,

25 November 2003, I was at my work, on the Portland waterfront at approx. 2 a.m.. It was a rather clear night with very few clouds,I looked towards South Portland and the Spring Point area where there are some oil storage tankers, there is a flight pattern to Portland International Jetport near to where I was looking. Two and then up to four very bright white lights appeared for approximately 25-45 seconds; just like a large plane would in approximately the same usual flight pattern , but just the bright lights , no sound, no solid object that I could see. The lights then went into a very large , very white cloud that was low over the oil tanks. I watched the cloud go towards Portland , slowly, almost meandering, across Portland Harbor over Bath Iron Works[which by the way was working on a huge oil rig at the time] towards the Eastern Promenade and beyond.I did not see the lights again after they went behind, into ? the large cloud.
