Duration:10 seconds
a V shaped object with 4 large, bright lights hovering slowly over a neiborhood, then dissapeared

we were driving in my my friends jeep when we saw 4 large, bright lights in a V shape hovering over a neiborhood or possibly moving slowly. it was difficult to make out how big it was or how high it was because of the heavy clouds and mild fog. its 4 lights beamed downwards through the fog. possibly within 100 yards of the ground. it didnt make much noise, or if it did it could not be heard over the car engine. we did a U-turn and looked for it again, but it was nowhere to be seen, not even off in the horizon. this was about 20 seconds after the sighting. the v-shaped craft appeared to be moving backwards as opposed to how a conventional airplane would fly. we did not see which direction it went.
