Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
20 or more Reddish Orange lights form a upward arch in the sky and start swirling , making formations then disappearing slowly.

My husband was opening the window to let the air flow and notice Reddish Orange lights that appear to be over I-26 between Johnson City and Gray Tennessee. They were 20 to 24 lights moving upwards in an arch formation. As the lights approach the top of the arch the lights started to swirl in a counter clockwise motion, (slow blender looking) As the last of the lights reached the top of the arch, the lights started to disappear one at a time, but not before making different formations. The lights disappeared one at a time, very slowly. My husband came and got me and I looked up and saw the same lights but at this time about 10 of them making different formations. Every time a light disappeared the formation changed, , last pattern made was a triangle with 3 lights.

My husband is an 52 yr old engineer and I’m a 42 yr old stay at home mom.
