Duration:10 minutes
I witnessed unidentified lights in the sky.

My wife let our dog out in the yard and found our neighbors watching lights in the sky. She called me to come see this for myself.

I saw two bright lights, reddish orange to white, moving across the sky, just beneath the clouds. The lights were very bright and produced eminating rays, in the manner that a point source of light would. Given their approximate distance, they would have been quite large.

The lights moved at a steady rate of speed, from North to South. There were no sounds or blinking lights.

I have seen plenty of aircraft flying with their landing lights on, but this in no way resembled that. I have also seen more than my share of military flares while in Southeast Asia, and these were not flares.

They continued south for several minutes and suddenly disappeared.
