|array of lights over the ocean
I live on the Oregon coast and I have a view of the ocean.
It’s nighttime and I’m watching TV, when I look out my window and I see a bright light appear, following by another bright light next to it, following by another and another until 5 bright lines all appear in a row. All 5 lights stayed on for about a couple seconds and then, they all turned off.
The whole event lasted no more than about 15 seconds.
The lights appeared at about 35-40 degrees about the horizon. The lights “turned on” in a rhythmic fashion, each coming on in 2 second intervals, from left to right (south to north). Each light was spaced the same distance from each other. If I were to hold my fist out in the direction of the lights (palm down), the array of lights would cover a half-fist.
I saw something similar to this, in the very same location on the horizon, in January 2005. At that time, I also made an entry to the National Reporting Center.
