Location: Gastonia, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:15-25 seconds
observed 5-6 reddish orange lights traveling acroos the sky in a formation, then they swirled around and disappeared

was outside on back deck,.. observed lighs traveling across the sky at what would seem like the speed of a normal airplane, didnt think much of it, then realized all the lights were the same color(a reddish orange) and were not in the normal formation that an airplane lights would be in, at that time i said kind of puzzled to my brother-in-law, "what kind of plane is that?".. he saw what i saw but at that moment, the lights broke formation and sort of swirled in all directions, not fast, and stayed in the same general area, meaning they didnt just go all over the sky, i ran to the back door and hollered for my sister and nephew to "GET OUT HERE , NOW !!!",.. i ran back out into the yard where my b-i-l was still watching the lights, they were now patially obscurred by some tall pine trees, then they just disappeared, no trails or anything,... my sister and nephew never caught sight of them,.. but my b-i-l definately did... i called and reported what i had seen to the gason county sherriffs department.
