|Seven, large, bright lights spotted by two witnesses, above horizon, in Vero Beach, Florida
We had just returned from a party next door at 9:30 PM, when I proceeded to take my dogs out the back door to the fenced yard, which faces a conservation area to the south.
When I stepped outside I noticed 7 to 8 large round lights directly to the east, about a mile away, which would place them over the ocean.
I yelled for my husband to come and as he heard the urgency in my voice, he came to see what the commotion was all about, within 20 seconds. He saw all seven lights with me and then we both saw them proceed to turn off, one-by-one.
He told me to grab the camera just inside the door, I was so mesmerized with the lights I didn't want to look away, they were very large, all of the same size and of a yellow/white light, no form was visible besides the lights.
They were at random in the sky, no special order or formation but pretty close to one another. They were about 60 degrees above the horizon, totally still, not hovering, not making a sound.
They then proceeded to turn off, one at a time but with perfect synchrony. I grabbed the camera as the next to last light turned off and started to film but the last light turned off. Unfortunately, I got nothing.
This is one of the many phenomenas I have seen in Vero Beach in the last 35 years, yet this is the first sighting of this kind.
