Shape: Disk
Duration:15 minutes
Multiple lights and Disc shaped craft spotted south of Bolivar.

I was sitting outside at 3:15 am on a smoke break. I was looking at the western sky like I usually do and noticed a light which at first glance I thought was a twinkling star. Then I noticed it was too bright to be a star and appeared to be moving in a small figure eight motion. I also saw a few flashes that appeared to be orange smoke. This really surprised me because I was under the impression that this was very far away. I then noticed a smaller light that appeared to come from the first. This light was moving east and flashing infrequently. It would flash a few times then was out of site until it flashed again at a significant distance from the last flashes. As this light got about halfway across my field of vision 5 to 6 more of these small flashing lights appeared and moved out of my field of vision in every direction. After these lights were gone a larger "craft" which I originally thought was a plane came into view. It had a flash! ing light like any plane does but I noticed the whole side of the craft was lit. I could clearly see the shape to be what I can only describe as a disc or saucer viewed from the side. I watched this craft moving west towards the original light and it slowly dimmed out after it passed the original light. The original light was still in the sky when I went back inside.
