Did anyone else see 8-12 bright orange lights in the sky in western prince william county in Virgina June 5, 2010 similar to the ones in this youtube video?
Thank God I was not home alone and there were other people who saw them! it was FREAKY!
We live in such a populated area, someone else had to have seen it!!
The first night the lights were white and we watched them for around twenty minutes. They mimicked spotlights, but they could not have been due to the way they moved across the sky and they changed shapes.
The second night my friend came in and got me, when I went outside there were about 8-12 orange lights, holding there position, as they moved they moved at the exact same time and kept the same spacing. I am a construction project manager and cannot think of anything that would look and move like these things. They seem to hover, but when they moved they moved fast. We live near Dulles International Airport and I find it hard to believe with all the planes in the air, that the lights were not seen by other people. We live in a a VERY populated area.
The lights were noticed between 8:30 and 9:00, I dont know how long they were there before we noticed because we were inside. The orange lights only stayed visible for about 3-4 minutes. The lights moved in a South West position. I did not notice a wind but when the wind blow it usually comes from the South near the wood line.
Has anyone else reported these lights in my area? I had a gentlemen in England see them the same night around 11:00, but I am in the US!
Note: The photo is a video capture of the YouTube video the witness refers to.
