White Lights Over Lake

A friend and I were camping at Westcott State Beach Park up in Sacket’s Harbor, N.Y., the week of August 4th, until August 8th, 2014.

One night I stepped out of the camper to have a cigarette and to look at the stars. We both live in the city (Syracuse, N.Y.) so it’s rare to be able to gaze at the beautiful sky.

After a couple of minutes, I saw a few red lights in a line and, at first, thought it was a plane. However, it didn’t seem quite right. There was no noise as in a plane’s engine. The lights were a little too big and bright to be close and yet be silent. If it was a plane of any size, it would be making noise. The lights would go from red to white, red to white. Then all of a sudden, they just disappeared. They did not fade away or drift off, just disappeared. As if the lights were shut off.

After seeing a few more appear above the lake, I went in to tell my friend, who came outside and saw them just before they disappeared. She, being more of a skeptic, thought it was a plane. However, the way they just hovered there, moved slowly, three at a time, right across the sky and then to just vanish was unsettling. If I remember correctly there were nine or twelve. They were definitely grouped in threes. They came all in a straight line over the clear sky.
