object with bright white lights

My father saw an object in the sky with three bright lights on it. He called me and I went outside to find an oval disk shape with one bright light on it.

My son and I watched it as it moved up in the sky and the down in the trees. After a few minutes the one bright light then became two lights with what looked like a beam of light coming from each bright light down towards the ground. We watched this for several minutes as it moved up and down in the sky and then when it was up in the sky it stopped moving and then just vanished.

One hour later my son and one of his friends went down to the next town over and they saw the same bright light oval shaped thing and they watched it for a few minutes but this time there was one bright white light and then they saw red lights like lasers coming from the top and bottom of the shape.

My son had a camera with him and tried to take a picture, but he doesnt know if he got it or not.


i have more info on the sighting that we saw, we found out that 2 more people had seen the lights that we saw and they were in the west. I also called the state police and local 911 center and they didnt recieve any reports on it. i have emailed the local newspaper with the info, and i havent received anything back yet. the pictures that i took of the six lights over my house came out good. we went last night and watch for 3 hours and saw nothing.


Possible sighting of Venus in the western sky. PD
