|6 yr-old daughter and Mom spotted 4 spaceships in a large cloud on a clear Hawaii night.
I was driving south at approximately 8:45 PM on March 5, 2010, and my 6-yr-old daughter was in the passenger seat, singing a song. Suddenly she stopped singing and because of the sudden quiet she emitted, as a Mom, it sort of startled me. But I was driving on a busy highway and concentrated on the road instead of attending to her. After about 10 seconds she finally expressed a sound (she'd been staring intently out the window). She said: "Oh, wow" or something similar and that she was watching a UFO! Of course my initial reaction was to totally dismiss it, like she was being childish and I told her there was no such thing, it was just twinkling in the stars. In Hawaii, of course, the clear night sky is utterly spectacular and pristine. I never glanced in her direction and we talked about space for the remainder of the ride.
We pulled into our apartment complex's parking lot, about 5-10 minutes later and we both got out of the car. I still needed to get my 2 yr-old out of the car, who was sitting in a car seat in the back, but something made me look up in the sky first. The sky was completely sparkling clean with no clouds. Directly above us I saw a large cloud with a bunch of multiple dancing lights inside, as if someone was projecting a light show into a cloud. My 6 yr-old can describe it more accurately since she watched it longer than I did. I couldn't believe what I saw. It didn't make any logical sense. A lot of my mental energy went into attempting to process the meaning of it all, as I was watching it. The only possible explanation I could think of, was that a big light show was happening on the beach about 100 feet below me and being projected into a cloud. The lights were dancing quickly and there were many lights, like a show. The only other answer was that it was a UFO.
My 6 yr-old's description, is better since I needed to attend to my 2 yr-old abruptly: She said it was 3 to 4 circles of lights (like a craft) in the transparent cloud (the cloud reminded me of the material a ghost would be made out of, invisible, yet, not invisible). When my daughter initially saw the thing in the car she said the circles, were dancing around in circles really fast, going first, clockwise and then, counter clockwise, in rhythmic motion. Later, when we saw it in the parking lot, the lights changed movement and direction: blinking sort of haphazardly but with purpose, not clumsy, and not going in just circles any more and they were "dancing" quickly. To me, "dancing lights" fits well because the "feeling" I received was that of a kind of rhythmic motion and almost celebratory, as if a light "show" was taking place. My daughter saw the lights as: about, 4 circular crafts, with fast blinking lights.
Neither my daughter nor I could "believe" what we saw, we kept rubbing our eyes to see if our vision was messed up, but it wasn't, it was real! I'd turned to retrieve my 2-yr-old daughter out of the car and proceeded to discard of some rubbish in a nearby trash can, and the thing had totally dematerialized! My 6 yr-old hadn't seen it vanish, either, for she had looked away momentarily, too.
The weirdest disappearing aspect, was the fact, the wispy cloud the lights had been projecting from, was gone, as well. Not a trace of a cloud was left in the sky.
