Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
8 orange lights in the sky, fairly low, drifting, almost playing, no sound, moving slowly. Non threatening, mesmerizing. Awestruck.

I was running to the store real quick and foolishly didn't bring my phone. I saw a minimum of 8 orange lights over the tree tops as I was walking to my car. I didn't think much of it and pulled out into the road and drove on. As I neared the top of the bridge on our road I noticed them again, as it's a rural area and it was quite dark.

I stopped my car and got out. I was mesmerized by 8 orange glowing, drifting lights. Slowly moving west in no particular pattern. I was awestruck as it looked like 8 orange glowing Para-sails in the sky. I imagined it was a group of people flying them and just out having fun. Then I realized it was dark, it was 38 degrees. These were no Para-sails. I literally stood there mesmerized as they drifted west and then disappeared into some heavy cloud cover that was moving in.

This was my first experience with anything like this but it wasn't frightening. It was almost magical. I don't know what they were but I can't imagine anything man-made that would create what I saw. I would estimate the height to be probably 3000 feet. Very strange.
