|4 orange lights in formation
Coming home from work headed east and northeast around 6:30pm I saw just over the horizon 4 bright round solid orange lights about the same distance apart (3 of them) and the 4th light just slightly more distance between it and the 3 others. It looked like they were the same height. One of the lights (they did not seem connected physically in any way) seemed to be changing color between bright orange and white and it appeared as if it were "flipping" and constantly turning. All 4 lights were hovering. These were not flares, i have seen flares before. There was no noise emitting from them and they seemed to be over the Balmoral Racetrack. I considered possibly helicopters taping an event or something - but these did not act like helicopters. By the time I got home and ran in the house to get my camera, all the lights had gone out. I do see lights FREQUENTLY over the racetrack and wonder if something natural is happening or explainable. One thing I'd like t! o mention is that the lights went out one by one. I have seen it before ... its sort of a horshoe shape, like a gradual rainbow - not as harsh as a horseshoe. The lights lasted maybe 10-15 minutes, by the time that I had seen them they looked bright and I thought I'd have time enough to catch them on camera and film it. I now am carrying my camera hoping to catch them for submission.
