Shape: Formation
Duration:16 minutes
Multiple objects appeared in a linear formation.

On July 26, 2018 I was driving southbound on US15 in Maryland. Between Emmitsburg and Thurmont, Maryland, I observed a large slightly yellow object hovering in the southeastern sky just above the horizon line, but below the scattered clouds from 4:32AM-4:45AM. The object could have been a conventional aircraft flying towards me, however, there were no wing marking lights and the object never changed in scale or location.

At 4:46AM, I realized object had disappeared. At that time, I was still southbound on US15, near the Powell Road intersection, near Lewistown, MD, and the clouds began to part. As the clouds parted, at the 1 o'clock position in the southern sky, I saw two small shining objects in extremely close position to each other emitting a blue-white light. One by one, four additional lights appeared in close proximity to one another. The lights illuminated one by one towards the horizon. When all six were illuminated, they formed a perfectly straight line at extremely high altitude.

From my position, the objects were located approximately 14 inches above the horizon line, and the line they formed was approximately 1 1/2 inches long. There was no structure visible, only the light the objects emitted. The light did not twinkle, strobe, or otherwise alter in luminosity. The line they formed was at about a 100 degree angle relative to the horizon line. All objects maintained position. After about one minute, the objects faded one by one, in the reverse order that they appeared (disappearing low to high). No additional anomalies were observed.
