Duration: 1 minute
Swirling mass of approximately 12 red to amber lights.

It was just after dusk and I was facing West when directly above me I saw a swirling mass of approximately 12 abmer colored lights. They were slowly moving to the South at approx. 5-10 mph. I could not identify a specific shape or size, but the lights seemed to move independently of each other. The size of the lights were very small and circled one another in a counter clockwise direction. It was a very clear night with no clouds in the sky. I cannot estimate an altitude, however, I feel that they were fairly close to the ground; less than 2000 feet? There was no sound eminating from the objects. At first I thought it was a swarm of birds, yet these objects were illuminated and slowly disappeared from sight to the South. It was very strange and I'm curious if others have observed this phenomenom.
