There are sightings of three lights, seen at different times.

I saw three UFO's last night, 12/9/2017 (early morning actually). I am not sure what time it was when we saw the first two. What I observed was a bright light, North of our house moving West to East. At first, I thought it might have been the International Space Station (ISS). I opened our front door and ask my girlfriend's daughter to come out. I was in the doorway for 45 sec. to a minute. She came out and the first UFO had vanished and I thought I should still have been able to see it. When I looked again, in about the same position in the sky, there was another bright light moving at about the same speed, altitude, etc. We watched it for a few seconds and it disappeared. The two UFO's had been reflecting light from over the horizon and when they entered the Earth's shadow they could no longer be seen. They had no lights on them.

I was out on the front porch a few hours later about 5:30 a.m. The view from the porch is mostly to the North and East. I looked up at the Moon and saw what I thought was a bright large planet close to the Moon's position, then I noticed the object was moving from South to North. Again, my first thought was that it was a satellite. I watched it for about 15 to 20 seconds and all of the sudden, it shot off, at a mind boggling speed, to the Southwest at about a 300 to 310 degree angle from the direction that it had been moving. I had one of those "Wow!!" moments. It disappeared quickly. After it made the turn, I only saw it for maybe two seconds. I think it had been reflecting light from the Moon and just disappeared into shadow as it changed direction.
