Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
At about 8pm central time, October 31, 2004, 3 bright red lights were seen in the Eastern Sky. They started out in a gradual "L" formation. The were moving very slowly. There was no noise, like an airplane or helicopter would make. It then seemed like they were moving closer to one another. They moved into a perfect "L" formation, then a straight vertical formation, and then a triangular formation (one at the top two at the bottom). Then, the top light seemed to fall quickly out of place, going straight down. And eventually you couldn't see it anymore. It seemed to disappear. The other two kept moving slowly, not changing positions. Then they seemed to gradually move away from one another. It was a cloudy/foggy night, so the other two eventually disappeared. Then at about 9:20pm that same evening, another bright red light was seen moving East, all by itself. It was only visible for a few minutes, then disappeared.
