Location: Grand Blanc, MI
|3 bright lights holding a vertical position over central Michigan, USA.
Just after sunset, just above the NE horizon. Both the Moon and Venus are bright in the sky, and I was aware of them both, so I did not confuse the additional lights with planets, satellites or stars. There were 3 bright lights in a straight, vertical line. They were not moving. They were not flashing. I kept a close eye on them during my drive home, they slowly dimmed and disappeared over the 20 mins that I was watching them. I am certain they were not airplanes or helicopters.
There were no flashing lights, nor did they change position at all during the time I viewed them. I am not ready to believe they were aliens, but they were certainly up in the sky, maintaining a constant altitude, and they all left within 1 minute of one another. It was one of the strangest things I've ever seen.
To finish up, I do not use a smartphone or else I would've taken photos and/or video. My wife called me during my drive home to ask if I saw the lights. She saw them as well, independently of myself. I am submitting this in hopes that it can be cross-referenced with other sightings in the area. There IS an airport in near-by Flint, MI, and I did see 2 airplanes flying in the vicinity. I assumed they were just landing like normal. Neither aircraft seemed to be related to the other lights in the sky, nor were they any sort of response to the lights in the sky.
Thats it! I know others had to have seen them, hope you get some good info.
