Location: Ashville, OH
Shape: Light
Duration:unknown ~10 min +
Dual beams of light (like headlights) reflecting off clouds, rotating in a stationary circular pattern; only visible when cloudy.

I went outside for a cigarette and just south of where I was (across the street) I saw lights reflecting above the clouds making a circle pattern in the sky. It was just above the clouds and when the clouds passed it couldn't be seen, returning when the clouds came back over head. Looks like what could best be described as whitish headlight beams but facing outward at all times as if something was rotating. I continued to watch for about 10 minutes and it didn't move at all from the spot where it originally was (like as if rotating towards something) but stayed circling the same exact spot in the sky.

This is my second time seeing something like this, but the first time (about a month or so ago) it was about 15 miles north of here. Like now, I had stepped out to get a cigarette and it was just circling just above the clouds right next door to the north of my position.

I am unsure on duration, as with both instances the phenomenon had already started when I stepped out and was still continuing when I had to go inside. I am a star gazer, so I frequently watch the sky and would definitely notice if this occurred more often.
