Location: Nantucket, MA
Shape: Light
Duration:7 minutes
Multiple bright lights in semi formation seen from Nantucket.

Walking along Old South rd toward the airport, we saw the lights seemingly approaching the island from the south eastern sky. They were randomly scattered in close proximity to each other moving at the same speed. After a moment or so one sped up unnaturally ahead of the rest and slowed suddenly to its original speed. One by one they slowly circled back south and blacked out. I called the Nantucket atc control tower and the controller on duty claimed to see them as well as an aircraft that had just taken off in the direction of the lights. He told me that there was nothing on his radar and also queried the aircraft which reported them at an unknown distance.
