Location: Anchorage, AK
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:15 minutes
Bright orange lights, moving slowly up from the ground, hovering and moving away to the SW.

6 bright orange colored lights rose up from the ground one at a time moving slowly and sometimes stoping in a hover over the Westchester Lagoon area. Lights appeared close to my location in downtown Anchorage. They rose straight up, moved in a northerly direction, circled, turned and moved southwest. The light only appeared to be on the forward side for as they turned the light faded and a dim cylinder shape could be seen probably due to the reflection of city lights suggesting that they were not very high. They showed no navigation lights common on airplanes or helicopters. There was too much city noise to hear if the objects made any noise themselves. One object moved off to the east. The event lasted about 10 minutes.
