|Three small green lights moving across Kingman, AZ.
On Halloween night, my wife and I ran out of candy early. She decided to jump in the shower. I went out front to see if anyone else was coming to our house.
I looked up in the sky, as I always do; I am an amateur astronomer. I was looking towards SWS at Jupiter. That's when I noticed a green solid light, about the size and brightness of Jupiter. I noticed it was moving towards ENE.
I watched it for about a minute, then ran in the house to tell my wife. Unfortunately, she was in the shower and could not come out and see it. I then ran into the backyard and I could still see it, moving in the same direction. I watched it moving ENE until I could not see it anymore.
I then looked around, not expecting to see anything else, when I saw two more green lights, fairly close to each other, moving in the same direction. I couldn't believe it. I watched them move in the same direction, until I could not see them anymore.
I was trying to come up with a reasonable explaination for myself. There were no other lights, like a red one, or a strobe, like on a small airplane, which fly aroung the area frequently. Since it was Halloween, I had a strong feeling that maybe a kid tied one of those green glowing light sticks to a helium ballon, and it was just floating in the wind, since there was absolutely no sound coming from the objects.
I later checked the NOAA website (weather.gov) to check the wind direction that night. They reported at about 7pm and 8pm. At 7pm they reported calm wind, no direction. At 8pm they reported a south wind at about 7 mph. I do not know what I saw, but they were not going in the direction of the wind.
