FROM REAR YARD. LOOKING NORTH, BLURRY T SHAPE YELLOW-ORANGE (CANDLE LIGHT) LIGHTS GOING STRAIGHT UP AT FROM APPROX 9:00 O'CLOCK POSITION FOR APPROX 15 SECONDS. THEN DRIFTING EAST AND SLOWLY CLIMBING TO APPROX 11:00. THEY THEN STARTED TO DRIFT EAST THEY TOOK ON A MORE BLURRY TEE SHAPE. THEY DIMMED AS THEY WENT EAST AND DISAPPEARED INTO CLOUDS. THIS TOOK ABOUT 2 MINUTES. OVER THE APPROX 40 MINUTES THERE WERE AT LEAST 60 SEPARATE LIGHTS. THERE WERE INDIVIDUALS GOING UP, SOME TIMES TWO OR THREE AT ONE TIME, ONE TIME THERE WERE 8 AT THE SAME TIME. EACH TIME THEY ROSE AT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT RATES, AND SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT POINT ON THE HORIZON. LOOKED WITH BINOCULARS, ALL I GOT WAS A MORE OF A BLUR.
