Posted: 8/27/2009
Location: Kilauea, HI
Shape: Other
Duration: 10 to 12 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
The object appeared to be eight lights in a bar to the northeast. It was approximately 15 or 20 degrees above the horizon. The impression was that it was a relatively large object The sky was clear. The weather was good with a few minor clouds.

The lights appeared for a few seconds, and flashed much brighter for a few seconds and then quickly faded out. The lights were a warm, orange color.

I have no idea what this could possibly have been, but it certainly was not a phenomena of nature. It was clearly mechanical / manufactured in its appearance.
