Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Several sequencing lights appeared over a vast part of the southern sky from right outside the Goshen, Indiana area

Husband’s statement: On the night of Wednesday, July 24, 2008, at 10:15; My wife and I witnessed a series of red-colored lights appear in the sky from our home, outside the Goshen, Indiana area. From our field of view, the lights first started to appear in the south-south-west area of the sky. I first witnessed two lights that where bigger then the stars around them. One of the lights were red, the second slightly above the first was white. They disappeared a few seconds after I saw them, then 5 degrees west, another red light appeared stationary like the first two and then faded out remaining in the same position. These first lights looked like they were several miles away and were fairly low in the southern horizon. I then told my wife, who was standing with me, that I thought there was something odd going on in the sky and motioned her to see. We then witnessed two more red lights appear, and then disappear, in a relative similar position to the first sighting . Less than a minute later ten red lights appeared in a sequence at an exact 45 degree angle. Then two more lights appeared at a 45 degree angle away from the previous angle still in sequence with the other angle. For 15 more minutes I had numerous red lights appear in the sky from south-south-west positions to south-west-west positions of the sky. The lights appeared to be many miles away.

Wife’s statement: We saw an amazing, unexplainable, display of lights. Lights were appearing and disappearing all over the sky. We even saw weird light patterns. All this transpired about 15 minutes or so.
