Duration:13 minutes
Two Brilliant blue lights darting around with rapid speed.

I observed two lights - a brilliant, sharp blue color comparable to blue christmas lights in the sky to the immediate Southwest of my position during the observation.

Observation conditions as follows: The local weather conditions: overcast with infrequent, occasional cloud breaks. Temperature: approximately mid forties degrees F.. Wind speed about 5mph - omnidirectional (changing directions occasionally from NW towards due W with occasional breeze from a Southwesterly direction)- perhaps MVR visibility (NOAA reference).

EVENT SUMMARY: Event occurred from 18:57 hours to about 19:12 hours EST.

I observed a brilliant, sharp blue light - ironically the exact color as an illuminated blue Christmas tree bulb / house bulb - drop rapidly from the sky and execute manuevers at low altitude that I can only describe as being like the irradic flight of an insect (a housefly perhaps). The object dipped in and out of the cloud deck several times - on several occassions perhaps even coming down to ground level -as it disappeared during those moments behind the distant tree line.

The object was joined by a second identical object - and both objects dipped up and down in flight - occasionally going above the cloud deck to dip back down to extreme low altitude. The objects later returned to above the cloud deck - only occassionally to peak to a visible position just below the deck as they appeared to move more towards the southwest - and away from my range of vision. The objects were not fireworks - nor were they any form of conventional remotely controlled vehicle that I am aware of, as their speed of manueverability was outstanding, and unbelievable, almost surreal.

The objects were distant - about approximately between 1/5th and 1/3rd miles away from my position on South Main Street. They were to the South West of my position. The objects appeared only to be brilliant, sharp lights - as I could not see a superstructure or siluetted outlined around them - I assume as a function of distance. The objects were strictly vibrant / electric blue, and no other color - with the exception that they appeared to become of a lighter tone from time to time, particularly as they positioned themselves at low altitudes.

I would suggest that you please cross reference this sighting with other sightings from this general area - on this date - for validation, and that you should also make inquiries to local police departments and local airports concerning any possible phoned reports that may have been recieved - as I am positive that I could NOT have been the only observer.
