Reported: 1/18/2015 8:00:45 AM 08:00
Posted: 1/26/2015
Location: Baton Rouge, LA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 nights (16th)
Multiple orange lights on 17th, one blue/purple on 16th, Baton Rouge, Highland/Jefferson.

I was at a friend's on January 16th. He had been trying to tell me about these lights in the sky around his home. They appear consistently every night. I never paid attention. He called me outside, and I had my first experience with this when I saw a light that was approximately 4-5 hundred yards away.

It hovered, floated and was neon purple and blue. Almost like a firework in its brightness. It was absolutely silent. It changed from purple to blue. It rose up in the air above the treeline and went left about 200 yards. The, went back right. It then hovered for a while and sank below the trees. We have video of this.

The next night I was home but he called me to tell me there were up to 20 orange ones, some in formation and some not. They were going into formation, then breaking away. Some were going in circles. They appear out of the middle of the sky and disappear the same way. This is a common occurence for them.

I did an Internet search and several, several people saw the same thing. I am attaching video of what he saw on the 17th. It is very impressive.

My question as a skeptic is why in this world, are we not trying to explain and find out with government resources what these things are?

And on a side note-I went to Thailand personally and saw with my own eyes Chinese lanterns. They are not the size of small cars. And they do not move like planes.

And they are easily followed with the eyes, as they rise from the earth where they are let go. And Chinese lanterns are illegal in Louisiana.

Could someone please explain this?
