Location: Decatur, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:15-20 minutes
Star like objects moving rapidly through night sky.

At appoximately 12 am I happened to look outside & saw what appeared to be a really bright star or planet in the horizon. I sat looking at it for a few minutes, only to notice that it was moving. I continued watching it, thinking that it might be a plane. As I was watching, it suddenly disappeared & reappeared much closer to the house. It was moving too fast to be a plane. So I went outside to see if I could get a better look. I then saw it disappear then reappear much farther away. It remained motionless at that point, then much to my disbelief more lights appeared until they were 5-7 of them. They remained motionless, somewhat lined up, approximately the height that planes fly. Then one would disappear & reappear farther away in a matter of seconds. I recall them changing colors, red, blue & yellow as well. Each of these lights continued to do this for approximately 15 minutes until they all vanished.

We live out in the country with only one yard light, so it was almost pitch black. These objects looked like stars, but moved. There were no blinking lights as one would expect on a plane, plus the speed at which they were traveling was much too fast for an airplane. I happened to ask my 16 year old son one day if he has noticed the lights to the West of us. He replied yes. He then described exactly what I saw plus he didn't think they could be planes either. I have seen these lights multiple times and so has my son. We don't live near any airports either.
