Blue lights seen dancing in the clouds over downtown Edmonton

I spotted 3 blue lights moving in a rotational pattern over downtown Edmonton at approximately 1 pm on April 12, 2009.

I was standing on my West facing balcony located near Grant MacEwan College when I noticed the lights. An unusual, large, circular cloud was directly over the city and lights were positioned in the center, and densest part of the cloud.

At first I thought they were air traffic beacons, but there movements were irregular and seemed to be coming from within the cloud. There were 4 large lights which rotated in formation and then came together. Another smaller blue sphere joined them when they came together.

Then suddenly, like someone had switched off a light, they disappeared. It all happened so fast I hardly had time to realize what was going on before they were gone. I’m not positive about the number but think there was five lights in total. My view was also partially obstructed by the above balcony.

Within an hour following the sighting the cloud cover had broken up completely. I also spotted a helicopter circling the area within an hour following the sighting
