|From one huge light to three and then five, in the shape of an L, then vertical to a horizontal line, the lights faded after 10 min.
I was facing South as my boyfriend and I left Wal-Mart, when suddenly out of the clouds appeared what at first seemed to be a falling star, but then I realized it was not traveling too fast. So, then I thought “ok maybe it is a comet or meteor” when suddenly what I saw it split into three white circles in a backwards “L” shape. I was not too far from home, so I immediately called my dad and told him to go outside and face south. He saw what my boyfriend and I had seen, and then, it split into five circles. We were amazed and going crazy trying to figure out what it was. As we drove as far South as we could we noticed the five circles of light were vertically straight. Trees got in the way of my view, but when I managed to get another glimpse of it, it was horizontally straight. We saw a plane that appeared to be heading in the same direction and then it took a turn away from it. I am not sure it had to do anything with what we saw, but it seemed interesting. The five circle! s of light clustered a bit closer together and quickly faded out of sight.
I did try to take pictures of these mysterious orbs in the sky in the duration of about ten minutes that this was going on, but my camera phone could not capture something at the distance of the lights, which I want to say was possibly twenty to thirty miles away. Relative to the size of full moon that was out at the time, I would say it was about one eighth of the size (and the moon was big and low around 1850 hours), or about three times the size of the North Star, or maybe even the size of a light bulb twenty to thirty feet away. I am sure more people had to see it if they were going south of Krome Avenue. This is not the first time I see something of this interest in the sky and I am certain that we are not alone.
