|Cluster of red lights over Lake Arrowhead in Milton, VT.
Driving along Route 7 South at 7:20 PM, with a huge bright moon to my left (East). Ahead in the sky and through the trees I see three deep red glowing lights. I look for green or blinking. No blinking and no green. Just steady deep ruby red. I pull over just beyond The Dam Store next to Lake Arrowhead as I see now 12 - 15 red lights. They are coming from behind a large hill/mountain a couple miles away. Another guy has pulled over and he is staring at them and I ask him what they are, and he says he has no idea but a few minutes prior another group of them appeared and then winked out.
As I'm watching I notice the wind against me is out of the East but these lights are moving Northeast kind of into the wind, at least crossing into the direction of the wind but all seem to be unaffected. No noise, silent. With the very bright moon I look for smoke, or for balloons, I can't make anything out. They move relatively quickly across the sky moving maybe 1 mile in 2 minutes. Again moving from right to left as I look south towards Milton Dam from Rt. 7. The lights pass over Milton Dam, over Lake Arrowhead towards the wind turbines on Georgia Mountain. With the cluster of 12-15 red lights they are spread out but still in a group if that makes sense. They all wink out in the same general area, but not all at once.
Three more lights appear from behind the same hill/mountain and move in similar fashion, same direction and wink out of two minutes.
