V-shaped lights in Marietta, Ohio, Oct. 8, 2016

I would like to report a strange group of lights that I saw on Oct. 8, 2016, between 8:00 and 9:00 PM in Marietta, Ohio.

I was driving South on Pike St. (Route 7), when I saw a group of slow moving lights that were low and appeared to be moving North up the Ohio River. The lights were formed in a “V” pattern, much like a flock of birds or geese. They were amber in color. Each light had an individual “V” shape as well.

I pulled my car over to watch and they kept moving up the Ohio River until I lost sight of them. I called my husband to tell him to go outdoors to see them, but he could not see any activity. We live approximately 3 miles from where I had seen the lights.

I called the Reporting Center today, Nov. 1, 2016, with this information.
