Three groups of orange lights in different formations flying south at high speed over Baguio City, Philippines.

On August 27, 2014, 9:00pm, my friend and I just finished classes in law school. We stood in the parking lot, waiting for her to finish her cigarette. The parking lot is located within the city district. The sky was a little bright due to the city lights. The sky was very clear and no clouds in sight, no rain nor lighting. There is was no moon.

The first group of lights A few minutes later as we were chatting, I looked up to the sky. To my surprise, I saw four orange lights travelling very fast and in a very high altitude. They looked like orange dots similar to that of a star. The first group of lights flew in a straight line heading south. Then the first light started to wobble and the 3 lights did the same. Afterwards, the two lights in the front made a straight line, and the other two lights behind made another straight line as if they formed two different segments. They then disappeared in the horizon. At this point, my friend was not able to see it due to the speed they were travelling at.

The Second group of lights.

The second group of lights came within 20-30 seconds after the first. It was composed of 6 – 8 lights in the form which looked like a jet. They did not change formation. The distances of the lights from the others did not change. Neither the lights were blinking. Like the first group, the lights were also travelling fast in a very high altitude, headed a little east of south. This time, my friend saw it too.

Third group of lights After a few seconds, another group of lights appeared in the night sky. I was able to bring out my camera phone but to my extreme disappointment, the camera could not focus on the sky so nothing but our reactions to the lights was recorded. The 3rd group was composed of 5-8 lights this time. They formed a circle, or an ellipse. As they flew towards south at high speed, they slowly converged in the middle.

The lights may have traveled approximately 45 seconds to 1 minute from horizon to horizon. The lights were above us when I started to record with my phone’s camera and ended at the point where they vanished. The video had a duration of 23 seconds.
