Shape: Light
Duration:15 Minutes
I was outside at around 22:30 and i saw three circular lights in a triangle formation. They moved through the sky pretty fast, and then slowed down out over the water. The stopped, for a while, and then shot off towards the sky and were gone.

It was the 4th of July of 1998, and i was outside waiting for my friends to come over to go to a party. Something caught the corner of my eye and i turned and saw three circular, blueish/white lights moving quickly through the sky approching the water, 2 or 300 yards away from me. I watched them moved very fast to the water and stop almost instanly. The floated there for around 15 minutes, staying perfectly still. Then, with no warning, a small ball, the size of a basketball maybe, it was too far away to tell. It hovered towards me at around 4-5 mph, and came to about 50 feet away from me, and then shot off towards the woods. Then as soon as the small ball dissapeared, so did the other three circles, moving extremely fast out in the same direction they came down. The next day i noticed my watch had stopped at 22:37 pm.
