Approximately 20 lights, red, green, blue, and white moving in unison but flexing in shape with a helicopter nearby.

It was night time at about 8:30. It was a clear night, stars were abundant. My wife was driving as we were going through a suburban neighborhood going maybe 20 mph. I looked up and to the right (north) and saw a number of lights in the sky. I told my wife to slow down. There were maybe 20 lights, red, green, white, and blue. The lights appeared like they could have been stars but the colors were very vivid and they were all moving in unison. We turned around and stopped the car to observe. The lights were not all moving the way a stationary craft would, though it did appear that there was helicopter near by, I would find it hard to believe that the helicopter did not see the lights as it was pretty near to them. The distance between the furthest light on top and the one at the bottom seemed to be substantial, suggesting that if it was one craft, it was very large. The lights continued moving in unison but in a uniform manner. The lights all moved in the sam! e general direction but the lights near the top would move to the right and the ones to the bottom would mirror the movements in the other direction, but all of the lights would be moving in general in the same direction at the same time. The lights continued moving from north to south and then turned to the east. The lights were solid and never flickered. The movement of all of the lights together, from top to bottom seemed fluid but cohesive. The lights did not appear to be attached to a fixed craft but to one that could bend and flex. It is hard to say how fast it was moving because we could not see an actual craft, just lights. In general, it was moving slower than a 747 that you would look up and see flying, it was also a lot closer than a 747 you would see flying. Considering the geography of the area where we saw the lights, for the first couple minutes of the sighting, it had to be within a mile of us. There are decent sized hills nearby and it was not behind or abo! ve the hills, those hills are within a mile of where we were. ! There we re no sounds of an aircraft of any kind.
