Location: Annapolis, MD
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Erratically flashing set of stationary lights above Annapolis, MD.

I could clearly make out with the naked eye three red lights in a tight line flashing together in the distance at about 45 degrees above the horizon, with two or more white lights just next to them. They remained stationary for at least 30 minutes. They could have been a couple of hundred yards to a half-mile away; it was difficult to tell the size of the object to which the lights were attached.

There was no sound of a helicopter or plane. The line of lights was tilted vertically. They flashed erratically. The white and red lights synchronized a few times. Sometimes the white lights ceased, leaving just the red ones. They did not move.

I watched them about five minutes the first time, made the first video at 1855 (6:55pm) and I took video 2 at 18:58 (6:58pm). I then went into the Fresh Market supermarket. My girlfriend and I emerged about 25 minutes later and the lights were still there in the same position. We then departed.

I've since been back to the site, and there is no tower there that might have had lights on it.


Hello Peter--

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, to the eye they were (at least) three red lights bunched in a line very closely, with two/three white lights that almost overlapped the red, and strobed in and out of sync with them. The red lights were always flashing and very erratic in rhythm and intensity.

Yes, you can certainly share the videos.
