|One large bright hovering twinkling light that separated into three dimmer lights that twinkle and then extinguished one by one.
I first saw one very bright slowly twinkling multicolored light as I was driving in my car. It looked larger, brighter and slower than a jet airliner approaching. I kept watching for it as I drove home. By the time I got near home I could see that it had split into three unicolor lights hovering over the city staggered at varying elevations. I pulled up to the house and ran in and got my wife to show her. The neighbor was also pulling up and she saw it as well. My young daughter may have seen them as well. At this point they were all amber colored lights with a slow rotating twinkle. The three lights were hovering and slowing moving. They were maybe 500 to 1000 feet in elevation, staggered at elevations maybe 200 feet apart. The two higher lights were rising in elevation. The top light started to fade and flutter out. Then the middle light faded out and then the bottom light started to twinkle slightly more brightly and then started to flutter out finally dissapearing. The air was quite cold at about 18 degrees F. The sky was fairly clear with stars being visible and there was a slight haze in the air. The city light reflecting on the haze was enough that I think that I would have been able to see the shadow of an object once the lights went out, but the lights appeared to extinguish and then dissapear with no trace of an object.
