7 balls of *orange moon* lights in 2 V formations observed for 3 to 5 minutes until all sped off in 7 differen directions

I realize this is not current, however I have never read a like description or heard any reports like what I witnessed.

As I would do on hot summer nights, I climbed onto the slant roof over the patio off the back of our garage to get some cool sleep. I was 12 years old.

Lying there on my back with my eyes looking up over the beautiful sky above I noticed these 7 circular lights about the size of basketballs and yellow/slight orange in color very similar to an orange moon. They were absolutely motionless and in formation. The first group of 3 in a V formation and a bit away was a second group of 4 lights in a V formation with the fourth light on the right wing of the V formation. I was able to watch these lights for the better part of 3 to 5 minutes.

Suddenly, as if on a count, all 7 balls of light sped off in 7 different directions leaving a lighted contrail that lasted maybe another 5 seconds - all 7 lights disappeared - they were gone. If I had to guess at the altitude I would think 30,000 to 40,000 feet Wish I had pictures

I can swear I was not delusional, drunk or having any other stress. I was very relaxed and wide-awake and that’s the end of story.


Date of incident is approximate. PD
