-I filmed entire event via a night vision / infrared monocular; -object not visible to naked eye, only the monocular; -i am a lawyer in DC and MD and i practice law. However i have an interest in the ufo genre and occasionally film sky from my bed through the window; -my viewing window looks approximately east/south east; -i know what planes, stars, planets, and helicopters look light at night; -the object was four to five lights arranged parallel to ground (i.e. a line of lights parallel to ground) appearing as one craft. The light formation was at a slight tilt to the left and hovering, it seemed; -occasionally, little flashing orbs would appear in my viewfinder around the possible craft/light formation. I had been witnessing many of these bright flashing orbs for about 45 mins before the light formation appeared. I filmed the flashing light orbs as well. Orbs also not visible to naked eye but only through the camera/monocular; -all lights seemed to appear as the color similar to a halogen lamp like, say, the headlights of a contemporary BMW; -The potential craft/light formation seemed to flash in two or three areas along the craft, not seeming to move at all, but rather, hovering; -I zoomed in a few times (36x) and saw more clearly that this was indeed a formation of four or five lights, a possible single craft; -I lost track of the light formation after a few minutes but the light orbs continued flashing ; -the video is shaky bc no image stabilizer; -I tried to get the ground and/or stars in the pic for perspective; -i cannot gauge how far out the object was nor its size. Same with the flashing orbs. I believe it/they was/were at least a few thousand feet in air and about 2 to 3 miles away from me. The flashing orbs were all over the east/southeast view at various times throughout the recording; -I have been seeing the flashing orbs for the past couple months and gave a number of recorded films of said objects. For example on july 4, 2021 i filmed a series of flashing orbs close to/nearby a fireworks display; -happy to share videos; -please do not reveal my identity; -please use email for contact.
