Location: Sanibel Island, FL
Shape: Formation
Duration:4 min
While driving on Sanibel Island, Fl, 4 of us noticed a large formation of 30 - 40 lights moving slowly across the island.

We were driving south on Periwinkle Dr on Sanibel Island after eating supper on Captiva Island, when 4 of us in the car noticed a couple of light orange lights crossing above the road.

As we continued, several other similar lights followed the first two moving at exactly the same spead and in an apparent formation. There was no sound coming from these lights and they were certainly not birds and did not appear to be flares. The evening sky was clear and dark.

As we went down the road, we also noticed many other people along the road at business locations looking at the same lights. We went off the Island and pulled off the road on a causeway and we could no longer see the lights.

Later that night, the lights were reported by the local Fort Myers Fox News.

I called the Sanibel police the next day and asked if these lights had been reported by any others. They indicated there had been reports, and they asked if I knew what they were. Of course, I could not answer that question.
