Bright orange horizontal band of lights seen by husband and wife.

While driving home from work, I noticed a band of approximately 4 bright orange lights in the Northeast sky. It appeared as though the lights were stretching apart from each other in a horizontal line. As quickly as they appeared I lost sight of them.

I continued home and kept my eye toward the sky where I had seen the lights and as I pulled in my driveway (maybe 2 minutes later, at best) I noticed them again. This time there seemed to be more lights or that the lights were multiplying as they separated. I got my husband’s attention to have him look to see them and he did. The lights maybe lasted a few seconds before disappearing either behind a tree line or all together from the night sky.

This sighting comes after two other unexplainable lights I have seen in the same general direction of the sky over the last two or three weeks. The first was probably two weeks ago, appearing as a bright red light in the sky that “burnt up” in just a few seconds.

The second was just a few days ago, either Monday August 10, 2015, or Tuesday, August 11, 2015.

It was like a fireball that flashed and was gone. I know that the meteor shower was going on this week, but I watched that and those were nothing like any of the three strange sightings I’ve had.
