Location: Baton Rouge, LA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
At least 20 bright orange/gold lights moving across the sky in Baton Rouge.

As I was driving down Airline Highway in Baton Rouge at about 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 20th, I saw several orange/gold lights up in the sky to my left. Then I noticed there were many of these lights. They were not blinking. Once in a while, they would appear to twinkle.

Since I was driving, I couldn't tell if they were moving or not, so I pulled into a parking lot to watch. The lights were moving, all to the northeast. As I watched, more lights appeared from out of the southwest, and moved in the same direction as the other lights.

These lights were larger than the size of the planet Venus when it can be seen shining brightly in the sky--probably three times the size.

Once they moved past me, I would lose sight of them, but more and more kept coming. A plane or helicopter with flashing lights appeared and seemed to be going in a wide circle in the area.

After about 10 minutes, no more lights came out of the southwest.

I don't know exactly how many lights I had seen, but at least 20.

I have no idea what these were, and I have not seen any news reports locally about these strange very bright orange/gold lights.
