Location: O'neil, NE
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds to 1 minute
About 10:30 pm I noticed a string of yellow/orange lights in the sky on northern Nebraska.

I saw something strange around 10:30 pm. Basically I was driving north from O'neil towards Spencer on HWY 281 in Nebraska and I was watching the sky because there was a storm in the distance to the northwest of me and clear skies north and east of me. When suddenly I noticed lights north of me just to the east side of the hwy. The lights were clearly above the horizon in the sky. It seemed like they might have been moving independently then they came together in a horizontal row of 4 lights and were evenly spaced aprart. The cluster appeared to be hovering. Then they began to move, but the cluster as a whole stayed in the same place. The light on the right side of the row of 4 lights stayed stationary the entire time and the other 3 began to scroll toward the stationary light. It was like the lights were on something round and it was rotating right so the lights were still evenly spaced and moving toward the stationary light. When a light came close! to the stationary light it would dissapear and a new light would appear on the left side of the 4 lights. It scrolled like this 5-10 seconds or so. Then the outside 2 lights stayed stationary. So between the 2 stationary lights from the left to right a light would scroll toward the one stationary light on the right side and it would dissapear when it reached the light and a new one would come out from the stationary one on the left move over the the stationary light on the right again. It did this 5-10 seconds or so and I went to grab my camera and just before I turned it on they all just went out and I never saw them again. It was strange. I've never seen anything I couldn't explain before so this was a first. I am curious if anyone else reported anything.
