Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
I saw faint, white lights zipping around high in the sky during a cloudy night.

I was outside around 9:00 PM and was looking up at the sky which was cloudy because it had been storming for most of the evening. I saw a little, faint, white light appear near a skyscraper that was across the street. It made no noise, was too high to be a helicopter, and moved unlike a plane should. Instead of a straight line, it zigzagged around in a way that reminded me of a bug, then it disappeared after a few seconds. A minute or two later, I saw three more appear and I watched them zip around in all different directions, then disappear. I asked someone nearby if he could see strange lights in the sky, so we watched for a few minutes, then I spotted another one. He saw it, too, and neither of us could think of what the lights were. We saw a few more before the trolley we were waiting for came.
