Shape: Light
Duration: >30 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Upstairs neighbor knocked on our door and led us outside. She said it was tons of drones. Took awhile before i saw my first one. No stars or jets in the sky. Mostly cloudy, almost a full moon. Once i knew what i was looking for, i saw at least one per minute. Most were white lights, some reddish. Most small lights, but some were significantly brighter. All were headed in exact same direction, west, above the clouds. All moved silently at same speed. Came inside before all the activity was finished. I thought maybe they were a meteor shower, but there were no trails. Thought about calling airport to the north of town, but it was after hours. Ive never seen a drone at night, so i cant agree or disagree with what she said. I was trying to find out information online about military action, but i found nothing recent. Then i found this sight. I dont believe or disbelieve in ufos. I think they are a possibility though. Im curious about these lights.
