Location: Eastland, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Lights appearing in succession.

To whom it may concern, I recently captured video of lights in the southern sky during late evening one day. They exhibited behavior not typical of airplanes or aircraft of any kind. They also did not exhibit behavior of falling debris such as a meteor or other object entering our atmosphere.

I'm hoping the video i did capture will be of some use, but i will admit it's not very good.

it was taken with my Canon Powershot digital camera while in video mode. At times i tried to zoom in and the picture would get blurry so i would have to zoom out and recenter on the lights A light would appear..and something would seem to "shoot off" from it and then another would appear next to it...in almost a perfectly straight line. At first this was slow, then at the end the lights would appear more rapidly and closer together. And then it stopped.I did not count how many appeared altogether as i was in awe. I have never witnessed thes lights in this type of formation, appearing one after another next to the other in a line.

Myself and my father have seen these lights, or something similar in the same area of the sky at different times for the past 15 years or more.They do not appear often at all or for very long. Sometimes they just appear in different places and blink off and on, and sometimes they move. Thats the best explanation i have for the events that i witness.

I also would like to apologize for the end of the video because i did not capture all of the event. It started a few minutes before, and as i was attempting to capture, my memory card became full and i had to stop to get another. When i did, thats when they started appearing in rapid succession and closer together and then suddenly they stopped. At all times and during every occurence there has been no sound coming from the direction in which the lights appear.

If you are interested in this video i could send you a copy on cd-rom or dvd format by mail, however the file itself is much too large to email.it is approximately 102 megabytes in size as i have my camera set to maximum video resolution.

I eagerly await your response.
