Reported: 4/28/2008 9:42:11 AM 09:42
Posted: 6/12/2008
Location: Honaunau, HI
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
10 to 20 lights in the sky above Honaunau, Hi 4/27/08

I was inside my home exercising and noticed a glowing light in the sky through my window. I went outside to investigate. I noticed ten glowing lights resembling dim fireballs in the sky in an octagon formation with two or three in the middle of the octagon. I went inside to get my phone camera and when I got back out to the road to film, the glowing lights left their octagon formation and began to ascend in single-file into outer space.

I watched as all ten (could be more) faded away at what seemed to be very fast altitudes. It wasn't over just yet. Suddenly there were 8 to ten more where the first ten had been in octagon formation. They moved into single-file and ascended into space as well.

There were many people on the highway stopping their vehicles to this spectacle. I could hear cars stopping and people talking about what they were experiencing. I heard one person say that they saw a glowing blue/green inside the orange/yellow fire of each light.

This sighting took place on Sunday, April 27 2008 at between 8:30 and 10 pm. There was a report of a man down at Keei beach (4 miles away) who saw the lights in an upside down question mark formation at sundown towards the mountains. That was sundown! that means the lights were in the sky for quite some time (half hour+). When I noticed the lights, they were towards the ocean, meaning the lights were between the main Mamalahoa hwy in Honaunau and the ocean- a 4-5 mile area.

There were two phases of lights. The first held formation, then ascended at approx 9:00, then 5 minutes later as second series of lights (from the horizon) ascended into in the same place.

I was pondering the altitude of the lights before they disappeared and 20,000 plus feet came to mind.

There were dozens of whitenesses. There will probably be more reports of this same sighting. I filmed for five minutes. The movie took does not do the sighting any justice because of extremely low resolution. Only minute specs of dots are seen ever few seconds- nothing consistent to the actual behavior of the lights. here is the link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o3AeYLiY-k (may contain some foul language) Thank you
