Location: Philadelphia, PA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Four solid red lights sighted north of Philadelphia moving south in no particular formation disappeared one by one.

I was sitting on my roof when I saw four red lights in the western distance. I was looking west over the Schuylkill River. The objects were flying south, possibly southwest. At first I thought they were incoming planes (like when you see a row of planes following the same flight path) but there was no blinking light, only a solid red light for each object with no discernable flight pattern.

The objects were in no particular formation, they were randomly staggered to describe it best. From my view they approached from the north making their way into my view from my building which blocked that part of the sky. They were approaching my next visual obstacle, a tree, when one light seemed to disappear in the distance as if it went straight into the sky or due west away from me. The other three lights then passed behind the tree.

I waited for them to reappear, but only one came out on the other side and then it too disappeared.
