Location: Rochester, NY
Shape: Formation
Duration:5 minutes
Large craft, and separate red lights, in the early morning sky.

Driving 490 West on the East side of the Genesee River, I first noticed a formation of white lights, as if the object had multiple lights, brighter white lights on the outside with smaller white lights outlining what looked to be a large craft. I could not see the craft, only the white lights. The lights were unmoving, unwavering and not blinking.

Prior to this, while driving through Fairport, I had seen a moving object, which looked similar, however I dismissed it as an airplane, as it was flying in the direction of the airport.

Shortly after seeing this larger object, I noticed several, I was driving so couldn't really stare at them, but there were a minimum of 10 bright red lights in the sky to the south of the highway, sporadically hanging in the sky. They were intensely bright and some were moving around. Visually they looked like a column of red lights there were simply not in a row, and they ranged from close to the rooftops to well into the sky.
