Duration:3-4 minutes
trail of golden lights in a straight line, lasted for 3-4 minutes in the louisiana sky

It was 720 pm. I was driving south highway on 71 towards Louisiana State University at Alexandria in Alexandria Louisiana. It was a Thursday night.

I saw bright golden lights traveling behind each other in close succession in a straight diagnal line. At first they looked like fireworks due to the amount of them, but I quickly realized fireworks do not travel in a straight line. There were about seven to nine of them. They appeared then disappeared twice, at which point two small stars a good distance apart blinked rapidly across the sky, as if in communication with each other. They were a little more apart than the length of my hand. I was looking towards the east over the tree tops.

This all took place in the time span of about 3-4 minutes, I pulled over to the side of the road to watch. This is the 2nd time in a month I have seen the exact same lights, only the first time they were bigger, closer it seemed. The pattern was the same, same color, same movement. I was facing south. The time was about 640 pm.

((NUFORC Note: Source of report indicates three times for the sighting. We are confused. PD))
