Reported: 9/15/2012 4:52:44 PM 16:52
Posted: 9/24/2012
Location: Wheeling, WV
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
red lights following each other but not in any type of formation

At approximately 20:15 on 9-14-2012 I and my youngest son, 14 yrs old, observed approximately 10 reddish/orange lights flying from what appeared above the ridge by Wheeling Park High School and proceeded to over Springdale Heights and slowly vanished. These lights were not flying in any type of symmetrical formation but were following each other at varying distances. It appeared as though there was a white light that was rotating in a counter clockwise motion and as it came around to the side we were viewing them from the red (main part) of the light would become diluted with the white light and appear orange. When I first seen the lights there appeared to be three but as they flew towards me more kept appearing over the same ridge. At first I thought they were helicopters but there was absolutely no sound of engines/motors. All of the lights appeared over the same ridge and traveled to the area over Springdale Heights and slowly vanished. These lights! were very visible and this whole episode lasted about 10 minutes. I am very surprised that there were not any reports or stories in the local paper or on the TV news.
