Shape: Light
Duration: 2 hours
Characteristics: The object changed color
Lights moving in deep space along a trajectory, not meteors or satellites

Before the moon rose, several lights were witnessed following a trajectory overhead going both directions, north to south. I acknowledge this activity was taking place during the Persied meteor shower, and several meteors were seen as well, but these lights moved back and forth like they were traveling along some sort of cosmic highway. There were moments where lights would phase in and out in stationary positions, as if one were turning a light bulb on and off. The event lasted from dusk until the moonrise at approximately 1am EDT.
