Location: Wappingers Falls, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
about 30 points of light traveling in a rope like formation that was whipping back around itself

As of 20 minutes ago ( 12/10/09 at 9:25 pm) I stepped outside my home in Wappingers Falls and looked up and saw how beautiful the stars are and how clear the sky was due to the cold temperature.

Traveling southeast I saw a string of orange lights. They were very tiny to the eye. Almost the size of a very distant star. At first it looked like formation of Canadian geese because it was traveling in a V formation. But then very quickly and erratically changed their orientation. They were then like a loose rope, or like a whip, still all in a line but following each other like a snake. They traveled a great distance in only about 10 seconds. 1st almost over head and then out of sight.

It all happened very quickly but would estimate there were about 25 to 30 of them.

I know that this was not something natural or man made.
