Shape: Light
Duration:1.5 minutes
3 bright lights seen in a vertical line that disappeared and reappeared randomly, one by one.

My experience occurred on Wednesday, August 5, 2015. The sighting time was somewhere around 21:20 because I came into my house, explained to my dad what I had just seen, used the restroom and sent my significant other a text about the sighting at 21:26.

I was driving home from work that Wednesday evening. My shift ended at 21:00. I was in the home stretch. As I turned onto a back road I saw some really bright lights in front of me in the dark sky. The light was bright white and almost like a starburst. It was brighter and larger than a light on any airplane I have ever seen. There were three lights clustered close together in a vertical line. The lights were hovering. As one light went out for a few seconds the top light lit up. Then the light that was out reappeared. This continued a few times. The lights would disappear and reappear randomly. I kept an eye on it for as long as I could while I turned into my neighborhood. When I parked in my driveway I could no longer find it. My sighting lasted no longer than a minute and a half. During this experience I did not hear anything. I was so unsure of what was happening that I forgot I even owned a phone… Therefore, I have no documentation.

I had brushed my sighting to the side and forgot about it until today. My mom was listening to Coast to Coast Am talk show online when I got home from work. She was listening to the program for August 6, 2015. There was a segment about UFO sightings. She heard about a sighting in Palmyra, Pennsylvania, which is not too far from us. That sighting happened on the same day and around the same time. This is what provoked me to look further into what I saw. I googled “UFO sightings August 2015, PA”. I found a sighting posted to another website. This sighting happened in my same town, on the same night, and around the same time. Their sighting that night was nearly identical to mine.
