|Observed two lights hovering and then moving south south East over the coast of Maine at approx Freeport , for 30 minutes
traveling north on I 295 near Cumberland, Maine, I observed two bright lights (orb shaped) hovering over the coastline over an area between Brunswick and Freeport Maine. The lights hovered for about ten minutes and then began to move south south east along the coast towards Yarmouth (in my direction) and Portland. I pulled over and looked at them with a pair of field glasaes and saw what looked like three landing lights (I am a lic pilot with over 1200hrs) in a row * * *. At first the lights were about 20 to 25 deg above the horizon and about 15 deg apart. They kept the distance between them at all times. I continued to watch for a total of 30 minutes, they stayed the "same" intensity color etc at all times. The lights were white with no colors. At no time did I observe "strobes" such as aircraft anticollision lights or position lights of red or green. When I drove off northbound, the lights had not reached the 90 deg position yet but were still movi! ng slowly down the coastline. I was unable to est the size without knowing just how far away they were. I was able to view them in my mirrors for about two minutes after driving off.
