|Bright round red light followed by a sequence of bright orange rectangular lights at tree top level.
On April 9th, at 9:20 pm. I saw a bright red light come on then go out. Then four bright orange lights lit up from left to right, then went out one by one from left to right. Then 5 orange lights lit up from left to right and went out one by one from left to right. These lights were really bright. The red one was round, but the orange ones were shaped like rectangles. They were right over the tops of the trees in my neighbors back yard directly behind us in the northeast, within 5-600 ft. from me. The orange ones had sort of a screen look to them. Like they were windows from a craft. They were lighting up as though they were going around something circular.
The very next week they were back and my husband and I both saw them plus, we heard that two other people about 4-5 miles from us saw the same thing.
On the 16th of April, the same thing happened. The red light showed up first. It was followed by bright orange lights (as bright as tail-lights on a new car). This sighting lasted about an hour. The orange lights looked different than the ones I saw by myself the week before, though. These looked more like flares, or fireballs, but they didn't go anywhere. Not up, not down, just around something like a disk shaped object that we couldn't see. They again came on left to right and went out left to right. It was like a sequence of a different amount of lights coming on each time. One set was three, one set was 9-12, one set was 2, etc. Then, as though another craft was answering the first one, (this set of lights was straight east instead of northeast) Four bright yellow lights lit up. These lights were bigger than the orange ones, and that is the only time they lit up. Then the orange ones in the north east went RIGHT to LEFT, as though they were satisfied with the answer of the other craft. That was the end of the sequences.
We got video of the bright yellow lights, and two of the last four orange lights as they were going out.
The next week (April 23)I got a video of a craft going over with no sound, and a smaller light came out of the craft. These had no sound, even though it was directly over my head. There was no flashing lights to indicate that it was an airplane of some sort. The smaller light that came out of the bottom of the craft, came down and then went west as the larger object was flying north to south. Then there was another smaller light flying east to west over the larger object.
My husband is a truck driver with a high school diploma, and I am a registered nurse/truck driver, with over three and a half years of college, plus more college credits from the internet. We are reasonable, christian people who never expected a UFO to show up in our back yard! This is currently being investigated by another UFO reporting agency However, I can give a copy of the video to another investigator.
