Shape: Light
Duration: 10-20 Min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
A cluster of bright white lights sat in the sky until they moved away from one another in a hovering fashion

I was outside of my house on my porch when I saw the UFOs in the West/Northwest skyline over a tree line. The objects were bright white lights that seemed to flicker a green color every so often, but mainly looked white. They seemed to sit in the sky without moving until they glided outward from one another in a fashion that I have never seen any other flying object copy.

There were at least five objects that I saw. Eventually they all seemed to have vanished and I and the rest of the onlookers had given up on trying to spot them. After this I immediately called the hot line.

Then about ten to five minuets after the disappearance of the objects, I went back outside to look again. And there they were (seemed like less than before) spread across the tree line. I then tried to drive and get closer to the objects but I had lost sight of them during my drive. That is the extent of my sighting.
