Orange light pattern in the sky

December 9, 2013 Mount Vernon, Ohio As I was driving home on Fairway Drive just before 8 p.m., I saw some (two) lights.

At first I thought it was the lights for a radio tower because they were spaced at specific intervals in a vertical position. But as I drove a bit more a third to the left then a another to the right appeared and I thought the shape to be a square when two more appeared and it was a rectangular shape of orange –ish lights. I got out of my car to see it better and to determine if it was a plane or helicopter going to a near-by hospital. I watched it move very slowly in formation. ….not making a sound and that is when I tried to take a picture. My cell phone could not pick it up because of the darkness. Then I tried to call my husband because I knew that this was nothing I could explain. It was a bit cloudy that night but I thought this to be below the clouds. I could not detect a body to this phenomenom…only the lights … The quiet or silence disturbed me. It was directly overhead moving slowly…then gone.

I wrote Linda Moulton Howe to see if she had heard other reports. The next day I called the sheriff’s department but no other reports. I know that I saw something. It was NOT the radio tower as I first thought for it is in another direction. This had to have been over the Hiawatha Golf Course and moving to the northeast, possibly following state route 3.
