Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
Lights, dripping metal then gone in the flash of a shooting star.

Me and the other witness were driving home from dinner when we realized there were 4 lights, it seemed like they were seperate objects and they were not moving like any type of jet, helicopter or any craft I had ever seen. We decided to park the car and go look at these lights which were so intriguing.

We got out and walked to the end of the street, there we saw the lights, they were normal, white lights, they were stacked vertically but not in a tight way, it was slanted and it didn't look aligned.

They moved from what seemed so far away to closer in what seemed like no time at all. They just sort of, hovered over. The light became a little bit bigger and we tried to figure out what it was. Then the other witness cried out "there's something between them" I didn't understand what she meant. I looked and the light closest to the ground was now dripping, like a hot metal or something. It didn't seem like a beam or anything but it was kind of illuminated.

At this point the witness was hysterical and went inside and was almost begging me to. I eventually got the witness out again, where the light looked like they had faded a little, possibly getting farther away again.

Then we just observed the lights, it didn't last long, the wits was texting and took her eyes off of the lights, I saw a shooting star that was so close, we mever ever see ones this close it was amazing. It took all of my attention away from the light for a quick second. And that's all they needed. I instantly looked back and they were gone. Completely gone. I was freaking out. I stayed out there to make sure they didn't just fade away and come back. They didn't. I had never believed in UFOs or anything but I am in tears anytime I explain this story to anyone. It was so surreal and scary.
