TIGHTLY GROUPED WHITE LIGHTS IN EAST SKY

Between 12:04 and 12:07 A.M. (not sure) on March 25, 2015, I witnessed the following from my back window in Philadelphia, PA, 19135:

In the East sky at an altitude of approx.. 60—70 degrees perspective from my second story window I saw a hovering set of three to four white lights (TIGHTLY GROUPED) which were parallel to each other and a middle blinking light centered below the other lights. All lights were approx.. a (-2) apparent magnitude.

I then obtained my 10x50 binoculars and continued to view. This did not bring about or yield any more detail about the hovering lights. I could not see any specific structure supporting the lights. Suddenly, the lights and any evidence they were there disappeared. There one second and gone the next!

I’m an amateur astronomer and familiar with aircraft navigation lights. The entire duration of this sighting was about 30 seconds.

Any time I see and record spacecraft during the night I can verify that it was a satell! ite by using my software. This was not the case. This is a mystery.
