Location: Washington, D.C., DC
Shape: Formation
Duration:30 minutes
Multiple light formation seen at 9pm Friday, June 20th, over the Potomac river in VA, from tallest hill in Washington, DC.

I live on the top of a big hill in DC that overlooks the Potomac river. I was looking out my window towards the South East and over Virginia or the river, I saw a slow moving formation of lights. Not unlike what I've seen of the "Phoenix Lights." I watched them for a little while 15-30 mins. I took some photographs, which I will submit.

This view also encompasses the takeoff/landing path for Reagan National airport in Alexandria, VA, but I have been watching the planes come and go for a couple of years, and have never ever seen something like this.

The lights in the formation moved in inconsistent ways. Some moving up and down some left (south) some right (north). I went out to the street and could see them there as well. I went in to get something to eat and when I returned they were gone.

Also to note, the lights were orange, not yellow or white. I did see aircraft take off from the airport while the event was occurring and it appears the the lights were further off than the aircraft.
