GROUPING OF AMBER COLORED ROUND LIGHTS ALL IN A HORIZONTAL POSITION, SAME LEVEL

ON SATURDAY NIGHT 05/06/06, AT APPROXMATELY 10:10 PM I WAS HEADED TO WORK. I LIVE IN A RURAL PART OF INDIAN RIVER COUNTY IN FLORDIA. OUR COUNTY IS FAMOUS FOR GRAPEFRUIT AND OTHER CITRUS. I LIVE IN THE MIDDLE OF A GROVE AREA. THE NEAREST HOME TO MINE IS APPROXIMATELY 2 MILES AWAY. THIS AREA IS SECLUDED EXCEPT FOR THE OCCASIONAL GROVE BARN. SOME OF THE BARNS DO HAVE AMBER COLORED STREET LIGHTS SUPPLIED BY FLORIDA POWER AND LIGHT. AS I WAS DRIVING ON 122ND AVE NORTH TO S R 60 IN VERO BEACH, FL. I LOOKED TO THE WEST. I OBSERVED THE CELL TOWER WHICH IS LOCATED 3 MILES TO MY WEST ON 154TH AVE. WHAT I SAW IN THE VICINITY OF THE CELL TOWER WAS A GROUP OF 4 ROUND AMBER COLORED LIGHTS VERY BRIGHT AND AT ABOUT THE SAME HEIGHT AS THE CELL TOWER. I HAVE LIVED IN THIS AREA ABOUT 3 YEARS NOW AND I KNOW THE LOCATION OF EVERY STREET LIGHT AT THE OCCASIONAL GROVE BARN THAT I DESCRIBED EARLIER. I STOPPED FOR ABOUT 3 MINUTES TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT AND WHERE THESE LIGHTS WOULD BE COMING FROM. AFTER THAT TIME, I NOTICED A FIFTH LIGHT JOIN THE GROUP OF FOUR LIGHTS. AGAIN I DID NOT SEE A CRAFT ONLY FIVE BRIGHT LIGHTS RESEMBLING THE SIZE AND SHAPE AND COLOR OF AN AMBER STREET LIGHT. BUT NOW THERE WHERE FIVE LIGHTS WHERE SECONDS AGO THERE HAD ONLY BEEN FOUR. I CALLED MY CO WORKER WHO WAS WAITING TO BE RELIEVED BY ME AT 11 PM. I TOLD HIM WHAT I SAW AND SAID THAT I WOULD BE IN TO WORK ON TIME BUT WANTED TO TAKE 15 MINUTES TO DRIVE TO THE AREA OF 154TH AVE WHERE I SAW THESE STRANGE LIGHTS. I WANTED TO SEE IF POSSIBLY THERE WHERE NEW STREET LIGHTS INSTALLED OR SOME EXPLANATION TO WHAT I WAS SEEING. AS I TURNED MY PICK UP AROUND ON THE DIRT ROAD AND STARTED TO HEAD WEST THE GROUP OF LIGHTS DISAPPEARED. I WAS DISAPPOINTED BUT STILL DECIDED TO HEAD WEST TOWARD 154TH AVE JUST TO SEE IF I COULD SEE WHAT THESE LIGHTS COULD HAVE BEEN. HEADING WEST SUDDENLY THE LIGHTS APPEARED AGAIN. BUT THIS TIME THERE WHERE 6 AMBER COLORED LIGHTS ALL IN A ROW AT THE SAME HEIGHT FURTHER WEST AND SOUTH OF WHERE I HAD FIRST SEEN THE GROUPING OF LIGHTS. I STOPPED MY VEHICLE AND OBSERVED THE LIGHTS FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT I WAS LOOKING AT. THERE WAS A GROUP OF SIX AMBER COLORED LIGHTS ALL IN A ROW AT THE SAME HEIGHT. SUDDENLY ONE BY ONE THE LIGHTS STARTED TO DISAPPEAR AGAIN. I LOOKED TO THE NORTH AND SAW A SMALL PLANE FLYING TOWARD THE SOUTH PASSING IN FRONT OF WHERE THE GROUPING HAD BEEN. THE PLANE WAS READILY RECOGNIZED FROM THE STRONG HEAD LIGHT AND BLINKING RED TAIL LIGHTS. THE PLANE SORT OF ZIGGED IN THE SKY AND I WONDERED IF THE PILOT HAD SEEN THE SAME LIGHTS THAT I HAD. THE PLANE CONTINUED SOUTH. WITHIN FIVE MINUTES OF THE PLANE PASSING, THE GROUP OF SIX AMBER COLORED ROUND LIGHTS SUDDENLY APPEARED. I CONTINUED TO WATCH THEM AND ANOTHER PICK UP TRUCK WENT BY MY AREA. I WAS ABLE TO STOP THE DRIVER INTRODUCE MYSELF AND HAVE HIM SEE THE LIGHTS. BUT NOW THERE WHERE ONLY THREE LIGHTS AND THE OTHER WITNESS CONCLUDED THAT HE HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THOSE LIGHTS BEFORE. WE BOTH WATCHED THE LIGHTS FOR APPROXIMATELY FIVE MINUTES AND THEN SUDDENLY ONE BY ONE THEY ALL VANISHED JUST AS QUICKLY AS IF SOMEONE HAD TURNED OFF A SWITCH. I OBSERVED THE LIGHTS FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES. I HAD KEPT MY COWORKER ON THE PHONE THE ENTIRE TIME AND OUR CONVERSATION WAS RECORDED SINCE THE JOB I HAVE USES RECORDED PHONE LINES. I STAYED IN THE AREA ANOTHER 10 MINUTES BUT THE LIGHTS DID NOT APPEAR AGAIN. THE AREA WHERE THE LIGHTS APPEARED WOULD HAVE BEEN OVER A GROVE OR RANGELAND OR THE LARGE ST JOHN'S MARSH RESEVOIR. THIS AREA WOULD NOT HAVE ANY LIGHTING FROM THE GROUND THAT I COULD EXPLAIN. THE ROUND LIGHTS WHERE IN THE WESTERN HORIZON AT ABOUT 8 O'CLOCK IN THE SKY. THE SIGHTING WAS TO ME SOMEWHERE BETWEEN WESTERN INDIAN RIVER COUNTY AND YEEHAW JUNCTION WHICH IS ABOUT 20 MILES WEST OF MY LOCATION. THE GROUP OF LIGHTS ALL WHERE ROUND AND AMBER COLORED. THERE WHERE SIX IN A ROW AT ONE TIME BUT I HAD SEEN A GROUP OF FOUR AND FIVE. THESE I WOULD SAY WHERE ALL THE SAME GROUP BUT THE NUMBER OF LIGHTS DID CHANGE IN THE GROUPING. THE LIGHTS WHERE ALWAYS AT THE SAME LEVEL. MOST IMPORTANTLY THE LIGHTS STAYED FIXED IN ONE SPOT UNTIL DISAPPEARING. THE LIGHTS DID NOT TRAVEL OR DO MANUVEURS IN THE SKY.
