An unusual cloud with round discs and moving fast moving lights, inside of it.

Driving at approximately 8:45PM on Friday, March 5th, with my 2 daughters (6 yr-old in the front and 2 yr-old in the back), my 6 yr-old suddenly became eerily quiet in a manner that startled me. After about two minutes silence she slowly muttered a statement such as, “Oh wow” and expressed she saw the blinking lights of alien spaceships in the sky! I was on a busy highway so I didn’t glance her way.

Of course my reaction was disbelief and we spoke of stars and such for the remainder of our 5-10 minutes drive home.

East of our home lies an extinct volcano with a prominent observatory and to the west, the ocean, while we live in a small urban area. The sky was crystal clear, a typically pristine and cloudless Hawaiian evening, yet, when she and I hopped out of the car (it is a large outdoor parking lot), I spotted in the sky, a lone, transparent cloud hovering about 30 feet above us. As far as I can tell, no one else is around. I see around 30-50 lights moving and blinking and “dancing” very quickly inside of the cloud. Both of us rub our eyes wondering if our vision is messed up. The cloud is maybe the size of a small, one story home and doesn’t move but the lights are bouncy and wild, like we were watching a light show, but nothing I could imagine projected the lights, onto the solo cloud, from below; it was absolutely illogical. I viewed it for maybe 2 or 3 minutes and it “felt” “celebratory”.

My daughter studied the phenomena in the car for 10 minutes, and described it as 4 round spaceships that initially rotated super fast, clockwise and then, counterclockwise. One of the discs stood apart, however and didn’t move like the others. The 3 disc’s movement altered from circular to a more randomness, when we were in the parking lot. She also explained the cloud with ships, didn’t have a “top” (lid) to it. I’m not certain if she meant the cloud or the ships or both. As I was looking at it, my feeling wasn’t of fear at all.

My 2 yr-old needed to be retrieved from the car so I decided to attend to her and then watch the strange cloud after I gathered up my baby, but in a manner of about a minute the entire thing had vanished. My six year-old had been looking away, too, so missed its disappearance. I told her it was an “angel” so she wouldn’t be afraid, and every trace of lights and ghost-like cloud substance, dematerialized within under a minute.
