Duration:5-10 seconds
String of orange lights appeared in southern sky.

At about 7:10pm my wife, my daughter, and I were south bound on US Hwy 31 approaching Smith Valley Rd. To our 2:00 low at first appeared one orange light then another, then three or four more. All the lights seemed to be connected in that as the first one we saw appear, disappeared. They all traveled in apparent trajectory of about 45 degrees. They moved in a downward direction along this path. We thought at first it may have been fireworks. The angle was wrong. The light was different. And when they flashed they seemed to not “sparkle” like fireworks. The night sky was clear. The moon was full yesterday. It was about 15 degrees Fahrenheit. We can not believe we actually saw this. All three lanes of the highway were occupied. We are not the only ones who saw this. We wonder who else may report it though. Being in this kind of shock is pretty exciting. Ironically tonight when I came home I switched on National Geographic only to see Peter Jennings reporting on UFOs.
