Location: Bristol, CT
Shape: Light
Duration: 15
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Lights moving across the night sky and disappearing, all at the same place.

My brother and I were on our way home from a movie. Just as he dropped me off at my place, we noticed these big orange lights moving across the sky. They would appear in the southeast, headed west, and then disappear as they reached certain point. There were about 4 or 5 at a time in view, and they were absolutely silent - no noise at all.

My mother, who was inside the house with my father, came out and watched them with us, until they stopped appearing.

I didn't count them, but there were quite a few - they all came from about the same place, they all disappeared at the same place. They were pretty, but the silence was so strange - eerie, really. My brother thought they were balloons with candles or lights in them. I disagree. They were too high, and really far away. I'm sure there is probably a perfectly reasonable explanation for what we saw - I'll read about some weird night balloon festival happening in the next town over, or something similar. But for now! , I'm going with UFOs. (Much more fun that way, I think!)
