|3 red blinking lights moving across the sky
I went outside to take out the trash and as I turned around to go back inside I looked up to the Eastern skyline and noticed 3 intense red lights perfectly lined up in a row at the northern edge of the eastern horizon.
The 3 lights were very intense but small like pinpoints. The center light would blink and fade out and as it would fade out the two outer lights would blink in response. As it blinked in this back,and forth pattern, it moved south (from right to left) across the horizon, dropping in elevation slightly.
Once it reached the southern edge it got closer to the treeline and the object began to shimmer slightly. It reminded me of the way that it looks when you look off into the distance on a really hot day and see the heat radiating from the ground distorting things and creating a "mirage".
When this shimmering happened, you could see the outline of what appeared to be a disc like aircraft. It makes me think that it was using a cloaking device that failed to work properly as it got too close to the trees.
We are in a rural area that is dead quiet at night, and this object produced absolutely no sound. In addition, the lights were not spaced close together like that of a plane, but were much farther apart. If you were to hold your hand out at arm's length up to the sky, the distance between the two outer points of light was about the distance between your thumb and pointer finger (4-5").
My husband tried to take a picture of it, but his camera phone would not cooperate and only produced a washed out photo that appeared to be taken in bright sunlight when it was actually almost dark out.
