|Low, silent procession of orange 15-20 lights slowly flying over Westport to over Long Island Sound
Driving car along Compo Beach, on cloudy, overcast night. Just dropped off my son to see friends. No moon or starlight. Saw two or three large orange lights flying, low, slowly over Westport proceeding toward Long Island Sound. Lights about the size of a shirt button at arms length. While almost directly overhead, they appeared to be flying low and slow. If lights were not low, then they would have had to be huge.
Saw another light following first lights, then another, then another. All moving in straight line toward Long Island. Pulled car over to watch as more lights continued to add to the widely spaced procession of lights. Fifteen to twenty in all. Car windows rolled down, but could hear no sound. Another car stopped at a stop sign - not moving - as lights flew by.
Returned home and texted my son who saw them also, but said they looked red to him.
