Location: York, PA
Shape: Other
Duration:2 hours
I saw 5 lights in a row close together, stationery but moved backwards over the course of 2 hrs, high in the sky.

At 4:30 am today, I got out of bed to get some water in the kitchen. Looking through the window, I noticed a very bright light high up in the south eastern sky, much larger and brighter than any star or planet. You can imagine my surprise upon finding our binoculars and looking through them, what I saw off in the distance was 5 lights in a horizontal plane very close to one another, totally stationery. I got my wife out of bed. By the time she came to the kitchen, which was only a few mins, it had moved further away and at a slightly different angle, making it impossible to see it as 5 lights. Rather, by this time it was just one bright light.

I called 911 and 3 policemen came to the house. They saw the light in the sky, which I photographed by the time they arrived. Again, it had moved further away but was still clearly visible. They had never seen anything like it and made out a report. They got me your tel number in Seattle for reporting UFO's.
