|Arrow-shaped balls of light.
While driving south on highway 1806 along the Heart River south of Mandan, North Dakota, on a clear and sunny afternoon, I saw through the front passenger window 11 or 12 luminescent pinkish-orange balls of lights arranged in the shape of an arrow--as in--(approximately, but not exactly) * * * * * * * * * *
The formation of lights, maybe fifty to a hundred feet in length, was coming down at an angle, moving slowly, toward the river, which was probably two hundred yards from the highway.
My view was blocked temporarily by a stand of trees, but seconds later, having passed the trees, I saw the formation again. It was headed into the river and one by one the luminescent balls of lights went into the water.
There was no other traffic to cause a reflection. No planes were flying overhead.
Upon arriving home, I immediately made notes and a drawing of what I had seen.
