Seven glowing lights appear in the sky and each disappear and reappear multiple times within about an hour in Tiverton, RI.

Seven witnesses observed glowing lights after returning from a boating trip on the Fourth of July of 2015.

At around 10:30 PM, three witnesses at the rear of the boat observe what appeared to be a yellow/orange glowing light while looking at the night sky. We assumed it to be a planet or bright star. However, several minutes later, it disappeared.

Roughly forty-five minutes later, several more lights began to appear without having ascended from the ground and just simply appeared high in the sky. There were seven witnesses to this event, in which there were seven lights. The lights seemed to maneuver independently, but occasionally appeared to be in two triangular formations. Each object moved silently and ascended and descended slightly multiple times and sometimes moved in horizontal motions.

About ten to twenty minutes later, each object began to disappear one by one. Some appeared to change shape slightly by becoming more of an oval before dimming and di! sappearing. For the next twenty minutes or so, a couple of the objects reappeared but ascended and disappeared shortly after. We stood on the boat at the dock in confusion and debated as to what the lights could be. All of the Fourth of July fireworks displays in the area had finished over an hour and a half prior to the initial sighting.

Since the events, we have all been wondering what the moving lights were, why they were there for so long, and why they kept returning.
