|white lights moving within the clouds in irregular circular formation
White lights seen moving counter clock wise within the large cumulus clouds. Circular pattern was irregular, not a perfect circle. About 3 different circular patterns taking approx. 6 and 8 seconds respectively. Light was only seen within the clouds, when the light entered an area outside of a cloud formation it was not seen. As the cloud formations began to change or dissipate, the light pattern altered. Finally after witnessing this for about 25 minutes it reduced from 3 separate circular light patterns to only one. T he pattern of the counter clock wise movement changed as well. Finally, it faded away.
This happened about 1 ½ to 2 hours after scattered thunder showers. At the time of the witnessed light movements, the sky was clearing away. There was no storm activity; not lightning or rain.
There was no sound. No flashing or colored lights. Only a round white light moving counter-clockwise within the clouds in an asymmetrical round pattern. If you held your finger to the area in the sky the circular area would be about 5 inches in diameter.
