Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
7 red lights

This occurred on 4th of July, coming home from watching fireworks. I know because of this, what we witnessed could be easily dismissed. But the sightings were spread over the Hillsboro area, and uniform in appearance.

We saw red lights stationary in the sky. There was no distinguishable form other than the lights. I first saw three of these lights in the north, each at different altitudes from our perspective.

They faded from view, only to have two more float up from above the horizon (tree line and surrounding rooftops) into the sky.

These lights quickly blinked out. I thought these probably were lanterns, the kind with little candles in them. But then I observed two more lights in the south, already very high in the sky.

The color was a vibrant ruby color, not likely candle lit. They had a slow pulsating light that very in intensity. These lights were only visible for a few minutes before they faded out.

There were no noise. The moved like they were floating. If it were two or three objects like these I would dismiss them. But there were seven that I witnessed in two different directions, roughly five miles from where I viewed them. Really unusual.

I have never seen anything like it before.
