Shape: Light
Duration:40 minutes
slow moving steady orange lights, over 25 total over a 30 minute period, north of Monroe CT

In the late evening looking north of Monroe, CT, there were slow moving orange lights with random spacing moving North/Northeast. They did not have rotating beacons or strobe lights like aviation aircraft. It was a varying intensity orange light that resembled a flame. The number is an estimate.

They were moving from just above the treelike and the spacing was inconsistent, sometimes 15 seconds or so apart, sometimes minutes. It continued for quite some time and was definitely NOT military aircraft; I served over 20 years in military aviation and I am quite positive.

They were fairly slow moving and after sometime disappeared, I don't believe because of distance.

It was a clear night and lunar illumination was not a factor.

Several of us witnessed the even baffled at what it could be and every time I thought they were done, another one seemed to appear, arc slowly across the sky and eventually disappear.
