Cluster of red lights hovering at low altitude without sound during Great Northeast Black-out

During the Northeast Blackout I was outside looking toward the WSW (41.29 N - 72.36 W) and observed a cluster of red lights slowly moving Eastward and before coming abreast of my location (Cornfield Point) they went into a hover mode.

Estimated distance to lights was 500+/- yards and approx 30 degrees elevation. There was NO SOUND and no definitive shape other than a cluster of lights. They hovered for approximately 2 minutes, then abruptly ascended up and out of sight in the blink of an eye.

((NUFORC Note: Blackout occurred on November 09, 1965. We have amended the date above. PD))
