Unexplainable Oval Lights

On February 18, 2017, between 4:15 a.m. and 4:40 a.m., my nephew and I were casually talking and joking in the living room of my home. I was sitting on one of the chairs facing East looking out the living room window that also faces East, and while my nephew was commenting on a topic we were discussing, I saw what I can only describe as this: “Two oval-shaped lights, BRIGHT, sparkling,” appeared over the treetop of a neighbor’s home.

The only lighting from outdoors came from two homes, which I could see from my position. These two porch lights and one dull, street light were the only noticeable light sources.

I stared in puzzlement with what I was seeing, and the flurry of possibilities came flooding into my mind of what I was seeing: “Maybe it’s the traffic lights from the neighborhoods in the hills…but that can’t be because there’s no lights or traffic lights coming from that direction. It’s a big rig…wait, that’s too close and too big to be that low and that big. Street lights? No. That’s not a street light.” These are the thoughts that were racing in my mind as I watched these “lights” float and lower to the level of the neighbor’s rooftop and then disappear.

I stared, after it disappeared, trying to figure out what I had just seen. The first words out of my mouth after the “lights” disappeared, was, “Oh. My. Gosh.” Not wanting to create fear with my nephew, I waited until he was finished with his conversation and slowly introduced him into what I had just witnessed. His response was doing the “Sign of the Cross,” and uttering a quick prayer. I laughed reassuring him that there was no need to be concerned because I wasn’t afraid. I said to my nephew, “I KNOW what I saw. I saw it. I just don’t know WHAT I saw. What the HELL did I just see?” This incident lasted about 2-3 seconds, but DAMN, I can’t get it out of my head and I am not about to go broadcasting it publicly because who’s going to believe a random sighting of unexplainable lights amidst skeptics? Well, there you have it. I would NEVER put myself into a position of being persecuted for perjury. I KNOW what I saw, I can’t explain WHAT it was, but I KNOW what I saw. Please help me to explain this because it’s constantly replaying in my mind.

THANK YOU for your time to look into this and hopefully explain it. (I should ask WHATEVER it is to just knock on my door instead of appearing like that)
