Spotted ten red star-like lights in the sky. The stars formed an oval that burned as it entered the atmosphere. UFO then broke apart.

The three of us were playing Freeze Tag among other outdoor games while our families remained indoors during a party. One of us pointed out a cluster of maybe 10 red lights among a couple of white lights near the star Polaris. I thought it was a really clear night and we were looking at the constellation of the little dipper. We thought the little dipper had red stars...until they started moving. The red lights flickered and moved around each other, as if they were weaving between themselves. After about two minutes, we noticed that there was one cluster of red stars. It was like a circle of four, very tight knit red lights. This cluster moved over Polaris, and we were absolutely shocked that it blocked the star. All the red lights began to move towards each other, towards this cluster.

The friend that noticed the red lights ran indoors to retrieve his phone to take a picture, and I tried shouting to him to come back; something weird was occuring. Within ten seconds of our friend being gone, every red light added on to the cluster, creating a sort of 'pinecone' of red lights. They were together, but you could clearly see that there was a black line or space between each light. It was ovular, being thinner at the top and thicker in the middle.

Two or three lights in this pinecone of red light would flash white before turning back to red. Most of the lights flashed eventually, some did not.

Our friend ran back outside and exclaimed in fear, we were all excited and scared at the events unfolding before our eyes. The red craft moved suddenly down, further and further until it was nearly out of view behind a neighbor's house. As the craft moved further down, it caught on fire at the bottom as it entered the Earth's atmosphere. It couldn't have been a weather balloon or asteroid, nothing we thought of convinced us; rational explanations didn't sound convincing. The craft then practically disintegrated in nearly 20, if not more, red lights that seemed to fall.

We ran backwards as they continued to fall and turn white. The lights then disappeared.
