Location: Gulf of Mexico, LA
Shape: Formation
Duration:20 minutes
Orange balls of light in strange formations appear then diappear several times over The Gulf of Mexico.

I'm currently working about 90 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico. While smoking a cigarette outside, I noticed a bright light to my left appear in the sky. It quickly went out, then about a minute later directly in front of me, 1 appeared, then another to the left of it, then 1 under the first one and then another appeared directly above the first one, revealing a total of 4 at one time. They went out. Then about 5 minutes later, 3 appeared spaced out horizontally then went out. A few minutes later to my left again, 2 appeared in a vertical pattern, then faded away 1 by 1.
