Duration:3-4 minutes
4 orange/yellow bright lights /spheres in a cluster. 2 travelling together in a pattern then separating. 3-4 minutes

My daughter and I were driving from Downtown Fairborn, Ohio, on Saturday evening, 4/5/2014 to our home.

As we entered a more rural area my daughter noticed 4 bright lights in the sky. They were orange/yellow, very bright. My daughter thought that they were hot air balloons or lanterns, and asked if you could release lanterns in the sky.

I looked over and saw them, but was unable to pull to the side of the road at that time as there was a car directly behind me. At first I thought it may be a plane, as 2 of the lights seemed to be travelling together, and remained parallel and equal distance apart, similar to lights on a large plane.

I told her that it was a strange color but I was sure that it was a large plane from WPAFB as the lights were travelling together and appeared to be turning together. Then the lights split.

Her phone would not video while we were moving. I drove into a subdivision where we could stop and get out, by then there were 2 lights left to be seen.

We got a picture from her phone, then the lights were all gone. They were not moving like a meteor of falling star. Two were originally close to each other then split while the two others were farther away, but still all four were somewhat in a cluster.

I have never seen lights in the sky move like this, or this color.

We were unable to see a shape other than a round bright sphere, lights moving in unison and then separating, then disappearing.

I might add my father was an Air Force pilot, and I have lived on or near bases my whole life.

But these lights did not act like meteors, or planes and they disappeared while in the sky.
