Duration:1-2 minutes
Red, twinkling, disappearing and reappearing lights in the sky

First, it was one flashing red orb, about the same size as a star. Then another one appeared to the right of it. As both flashed, one disappeared, then another one appeared, further to the right of the second.

For a moment all three were there then all vanished, one by one.

A few minutes later more appeared, as many as 5 or 6 at a time in the sky, near each other but not connected.

They would disappear and reappear in a fashion that made it seem as though they were moving further off to the south in the sky until they disappeared beyond the treeline.

A little later, two non-commercial planes flew off in that direction.
