Location: Encinal, TX
Shape: Formation
Duration:20 min
5 UFO's in semi-formation, 2 disappearing and reapearing away from initial formation.

I'm currently down on a rig just off of where 83 & 44 meet (40 miles northwest of Laredo). Tonight at around 8:50pm, I was walking here on location and happened to look off to the north and seen about 5 spherical flaming orange lights at an estimated 3000-4000 ft. The crew here saw it as well.

What was really weird and makes this a "strange occurrence" is that 2 of the lights disappeared and came up what was probably a couple thousand feet away to the right and down about a thousand or so feet. I’m guessing they were about maybe 2 miles away or so? I looked at them for probably 20-30 seconds before disappearing. Not really sure but needless to say, close enough. After they all together disappeared, a couple of the rig hands came down off the rig and I walked over and talked to them.

This is where it gets even more interesting. One of the guys said he had seen these very lights just about an hour before I saw them and once more a couple of nights ago.
