|Amber lights appearing in a line, then fading as a new one appeared.
We were driving home on Old Riggs Mill Road when I saw a line of lights across the sky. They were amber, not green. One appeared, then as the next one appeared right beside it, the first one burned out, until four lights in a line appeared and burned out. Not disappeared; appeared to fade.
The phenomenon happened again just a short distance away. All three of us saw it.
As we continued to drive, we saw similar occurrences at different spots in the sky - just not always four lights; once it was two, once it was three.
I am a news reporter. I posted a blog on our web site (www.statesboroherald.net) and several people responded, claiming to have seen the same thing. One woman from Screven County called me to report a similar, but more detailed, sighting where the lights appeared in a V-formation and seemed to be performing a show.
There were no trails and the lights did not fall - they were NOT meteors or flares.
