Duration:5-10 minutes
Flashing white lights on a craft appearing in the east and heading west, appearing to be of a circular shape, silent, slow, diagonal.

At approximately 22:15 me, my husband, my sister and my two children witnessed for the third time this year and the second time this month, 3-4 bright, whitish/blue lights flashing in a diagonal line across the horizon in the southeastern sky. The lights appeared to be circulating around an object and kept perfect spacing between the lights at all times. The object itself was not seen, though as in a previous sighting, the lights tilted from a horizontal line to a diagonal line while moving from the southwest toward the northeast. The sightings have all been at nearly the same time of night and always witnessed moving basically from the west to the east. The disappearance of the object/craft is always at the same point from our perspective, being nearly due east. Only from the lights can it be assumed that the shape of the object must be somewhat circular, as when it tilts, more lights are visible, as if seeing lights on both "sides" of the craft. It was slow moving, there was no sound, no vibration, and no visual disturbances or obstructions with the exception of a very few sparse, low lying clouds beneath a full moon.

As for the three adults in this group: we range in age from 60, 56, and 41. None of us are any more or less than average citizens and none of us uses drugs or any kind of hallucinogens. We are, quite simply, hard-working country folk who have, for several years, been observing strange, random sightings in the night and day skies. To us all, it seems as though these occurrences have become much more frequent and with greater diversity in shapes, sizes, light colors and duration. I will note in all seriousness however, that twice in the past few years I mistakenly asked my son to get a camera and each time I did this, the objects disappeared and did not reappear for many months. I will let those of a more evolved intelligence deliberate on why this happens. However, I will not make that mistake again; as in to attempt to document on film such an object and simply enjoy it for the show it provides us.
