Duration:1.5 hours
Amber lights flying about in night sky

I am reporting this because I heard on Coast to Coast AM that these types of sighting have been growing and you would like any reports.

This happened in a very rural area outside of Durango, no lights other than farm houses on the horizon and a very clear night. My fiancé and I were driving home down a long stretch of dirt road and noticed three amber/orange light at about a 45 degree angle from us. The three light were angled at a 45 degree angle as well diagonally.

We initially thought it was a crane or something, and were utterly confused as it was a rural area.

As we got closer the light began to move horizontally. We then watched the light from our front porch. They were hovering over where a small mountain was (with nothing on top). They would shoot back and forth across the sky and at one point one converged with another and then shot out so fast it made me jump back in reaction.

There were approx. 6 lights at the most, 3 more than what we originally saw. If I remember right, after about an hour we had to go to bed so we never saw them disappear. I just with I could have filmed this, because it was so bazaar.

Also, we could hear "hovering"-almost a buzzing sound.

This was our first ever sighting and very freaky!

As a side note, one of my really good friends posted on a facebook almost the exact same experience and sighting, (only about 120 miles- in Arizona) away from our sighting about a week later. I thought this could not be a coincidence!
