Shape: Triangle
Duration:6-10 minutes
5 round balls-2 faded out and 3 then formed a triangle.

On August 12, 2011, my husband and I were down at a park in New Castle, NH at the end of a pier talking to a gentleman that was fishing in the ocean there. All of a sudden, my husband exclaimed "Whoa! What is that?"

We turned to look in the direction where he was referring to and there were five red lights (about the color of a stop light). From where we were standing the lights appeared to be approx. the size of a grapefruit-maybe a little bigger.

At first they were close together but not in any type of formation. Then one by one, they started to flicker and fade away. Then within a matter of 4-5 seconds we noticed them on the horizon appearing like they were rising up from the top of the water. Three of them then formed a triangular shape and the other two just faded out. The triangle formation just hovered for a little while. The whole "sighting" from beginning to end lasted around 10 minutes maybe a little less. There was absolutely no sound coming from them from where we were standing.

I managed to get a very poor picture of the triangular formation with the camera on my phone, which I will enclose as well.

I was just curious to see if anyone else noticed these lights as well. I was surprised not to see any reports of them today. Just curious to find out what they were. It was interesting to watch regardless of what they were. I know that there was a meteor shower that was supposed to occur. But these lights did not "shoot" across the sky. As I said before they just hovered then slowly faded away.

In the picture I am enclosing, you can see the triangle just to the right of the little house on the island. I wish it were clearer.
