Duration:5 minutes
Five objects moving together in close formation, hovering, and then moving off in seperate directions.

The event occurred just over one year ago, at the beginning of August 2006.

At approximately 9 o’clock PM, I watched a red light approach from the south-east. It was high in the sky, so at first I thought it was possibly a commercial aircraft. As it began moving overhead, it began to slow down noticeably. At this point, I called to my wife to watch with me. Once it was directly overhead, it stopped entirely. It was at this time that I noticed that the red light was surrounded by four white lights. If the red light was a square, the four white lights would be at the corners, one light at each corner. They were high enough that I could not tell whether they were physically touching or simply in close proximity.

The five lights hovered for about thirty seconds. Then, simultaneously, the four white lights shot off in separate directions, each one traveling toward one of the four cardinal compass points. They moved fast enough that after only a second I could no longer see them, but slow enough that I could track their progress until my view of them was blocked by surrounding trees and houses.

The red light remained stationary for another thirty seconds to a minute, and then vanished. When I say "vanished," I don’t mean that it moved off, or that it faded away. It simply disappeared, as if someone flicked a light switch.

I’m sorry that I could not describe the shape of the objects. If the event had occurred during the day, I don’t think I would have seen them at all.
