Location: Longmont, CO
Shape: Light
Duration: 10-15 min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Clusters of lights flying abnormaly shortly after daybreak.

It was 7:15 in the morning and the sun had been up for 30-45 minutes. I glanced up and saw the moon which was half a moon. Looking at the moon a bright dot of light caught my eye and I thought I was watching a sattelite. It seemed strange though because it appeared to be veering off a straight line that a sattelite would travel. After watching for a minute I noticed more lights in a grouping and another grouping set apart from it. I thought that they might be spots in my eyes but I noticed that they would disappear behind some high thin strps of clouds. My next thought was that I was viewing commercial aircraft. I stepped under the soffit of my house and used the gutter as a staionary reference point and noticed that the lights moved in random directions and circular patterns. At one point two lights approached a couple of others and ended up reversing directions before they got too close together.I watched one light fly across the visible moon and was able to see it constantly as it passed.After watching for ten or more minutes I saw my neighbor come out of his house and asked him to look. I had to cross the street to do this and was unable to find the clusters I had been watching. We did see one light moving away together. It was very exciting.
