Duration:Between 2-3 minutes
I noticed a row consisting of three orange balls of light in the sky approx. 2 miles from my home. The balls of light were spaced roughly 500 yards apart from one-another. After a little while the middle light began to fade. When this light had almost entirely 'switched-off' it quickly gained altitude, regained its vivid light and hovered in the same place for a little while. Soon the surrounding two lights followed the central light upto the same altitude. For about 10 seconds the lights hovered there in a row before shooting south at an unmeasurable rate of speed. It was hard to focus on the light as it was too bright and blurry for most of the time.
