|This is the second time I have seen these lights, and just by looking on this website, others are seeing the same thing.
The first time I saw this formtion was in mid-December. I live in Lower Swatara Twp. and a vertical line of four lights appeared in the northern sky, probably somewhere in the area of Colonial Park/Linglestown. They had an orangish color to them, were visible for only about 5 seconds, and then faded out. They did not reappear. My wife, who was with me, did not see them.
About 1 week ago, on or about 02/15/06, I again saw this (or a similar) occurrence in the same area of the sky. This time, however, the display lasted for about 15 minutes. The lights were the same orangish color, and each formation that I saw would go out after about 5-10 seconds. A few minutes later, the lights would reappear. They would be in the exact same area of the sky, but would take on a different "formation". It seemed that one light would turn into two, then three, then four before finally fading out. This went on for about fifteen minutes. My wife did see these lights.
Fort Indiantown Gap is is the same general area that I have seen these lights, and they do remind me of some kind of flare. They just appear to me as lights, and don't appear to be under intelligent control.
