Location: Gillette, WY
Shape: Light
Duration: 3:15
Multiple white soaring lights in one section of sky.

Location specifics: There were scattered clouds, little to no city lights. Our view was not obscured by trees or buildings.

While looking at the sky to the "left" of the moon, we saw round balls of light that were far bigger than a star "flying around in non specific patterns. Lights were seen every few seconds with each lasting between 3-10 seconds per light. The lights appeared to not originate from any one location but was kept within a specific "section" of the overall sky.

The "flying lights" were bright white but appeared to either fade or go behind clouds. The size was much larger than "shooting stars" or satellites. At times there were as many as 6 of these lights going in different directions at one time. The lights had no specific pattern and appeard to be 'soaring' and would change direction. There was no apparent trail left by the lights. No other color than white to the lights, no sound, no aircraft in the area or apparent satellites near by.

This activity seemed to be specific to an area close to where we saw the moon, as opposed to all throughout the sky. We called a friend to go outside and look but city lights in their area (about a mile north of our location)prevented them from seeing what we saw.

This activity continued for about half an hour with random "flying' lights. A;; visible activity stopped by 3:40.

We attempted to get video footage with our digital camera but did not get any useful images.
