Location: Seward, AK
Shape: Light
Duration:5 mins
String of 9 bright lights, orange in color seen at mile 5-6 of Seward Highway moving slowly south.

While driving home along the Seward Highway, I was at ~mile 4 heading north when up ahead in the sky I saw what I at first though were very large stars although that didn’t make sense. They were more of an orange color and much too large to be stars; I didn’t count them, I guesstimate around 9, always staying an equal distance from each other.

When I first saw them one end appeared to be below the tree line so I thought someone must be flying a string of something from their house (this too didn’t seem likely but in my head I was desperately trying to make sense of what I was seeing), however as I proceeded along the highway I got to where I was right underneath the lights (Seward Highway and Stony Creek Ave) and found they were not below the tree line and in fact were very slowly moving along in a southerly direction (toward town). They were not in any formation, more like a string of lights moving along together although when I first saw them and was ma! king my way closer (and therefore the angle of my view changing as I went) some of them formed into a pentagon for a short time.

I stopped when they were right above me, as it was night I can’t really say how high they were but maybe another trees length above tree line. After I stopped I tried to focus in on one to see if I could make out the shape but it was too bright, also noted there was no noise at all.

I decided to go the rest of the way to my house and get a neighbor to look with me but as soon as I got just a ways down the road they were out of sight below the tree line and I did not go back for another look.
