|Colored lights arranged in two parellel chains, vertically oriented.
Two parallel rows of lights. Colors blue, green, red and white. Oriented almost vertical. They were stationary when first observed to the southwest of my home in the country. They appreared to be at approximately 5,000 feet above ground level. About one minute after I saw them, they began to move in an easterly direction at about the speed of a Cessna 172 aircraft at cruise. As they passed to the south of my home and were obstructed by the house, we could hear no sound.
We went to the back yard, but could no longer see the object. After about five minutes, we looked again and saw it at a much higher altitude, in about the same area were we could see Mars during it's close passage to the earth a few weeks ago. It remained almost stationary then for 30 to 40 minutes. We observed it through a telescope. We could never see a shape, only the lights which blinked or rotated in a non rhythmatic manner
