Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Shape: Light
Duration:5-10 minutes
Five bright lights hover over Colorado Springs in perfect formation blinking off and on again.

On February 29, 2012 at approx. 8:30 pm, I went outside and saw five large lights in a perfect row and slanted to the right in perfect formation. The lights were yellowish-amber in color and were very bright and strong. I observed some of the lights turning off so to speak or disappearing only to reappear in the same spot. As one would disappear, another one would appear on the other side. So at times, there would be only four lights showing, then three, then five again, etc. It seemed like there was an intelligent pattern to the lights turning off and on. I watched this for several minutes until one by one they disappeared.

I also noticed the dogs whimpering as well. These lights were so bright that it seemed almost like large car headlights in the sky and approx. a quarter the way up from the horizon. The following morning I saw on the local news that several others saw these lights and called to report them. The newscaster said that the Army was claiming that they were flares. I am a former police officer and have worked with flares many times in the past. These were definitely not flares due to the fact they could turn off and on at will. They also stayed in a perfect diagonal line while hovering in the same spot. There was also no sign of smoke.
