Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
Opposing, pulsating lights, begin to rotate, then turn into a solid ring of light then disappear.

every early morning, I take my dog outside to start the day. on clear days, I enjoy searching the heavens for a glimpse of a shooting star. I was observing the early morning star formations in the eastern sky as I do every morning between 5:45 - 6:45. The sky was very clear with no clouds or aircraft visible. As I looked up at about 15 degrees, I observed a single star which appeared to be of great distance due to it's brightness. Then I observed first one light to the right of the star that suddenly appeared and was pulsating at a slow interval. It was not like a strobe light of an aircraft. Then 180 degrees to the left of it, another light starting pulsating. both lights then began to pulsate faster until the flashing became a constant light with no intervals. They then began to rotate opposite of each other in a 360 degree rotation, first slowly, then faster and faster until the lights appeared as a single ring. Then suddenly there was complete darkness. ! I just stared at the spot where I witnessed these lights for some minutes later, somewhat dumbfounded at what I had just observed. I am an Quality Engineering Manager for a microwave communication components manufacturer. I have worked in the aerospace industry for almost 40 yrs. I know aircraft and I know satellites and these lights were not from either types of equipment. I have never seen anything like what I have witnessed this morning. It appeared to be definitely outside our atmosphere, mush higher than satellites I have seen from the sun's light reflecting on their sides as they streak across the sky in their obit. What I have witnessed this morning was certainly not man made and it has been a really shocking event for me. After all these years, I was still not convinced there was any real legitimate UFO sightings until this morning. It's totally a game changer !
