|Dancing lights merge and seperate while traveling west to east in a matter of seconds.
I live in Paragould Arkansas. At roughly 10:40 pm I walked out of my house and looked up at the sky, surprised to see stars after the recent heavy rains. I saw to the west a large dark mass with about 6-8 lights. It was traveling rapidly across the horizon heading east. The mass split into 2 sections of about 3-4 lights each. The 2 masses then danced together, merging and seperating as they crossed the sky rapidly. The entire sighting lasted only about 5 or 6 seconds. My husband thought it was a satelite, since he says he only saw 1 light and it's speed was so fast, but it appeared very low to me.
The lights were white, with a darker mass apparent between them. The sky was mostly clear with few visible clouds.
