Location: Mount Pleasant, MI
Shape: Circle
Duration: ? - drove by
8 Bright Orange lights seen just north of mount pleasant, mi

Driving north to Clare, From mount pleasant michigan.

Left the business drive(mission st) and got on the express way headed north to Clare , MI Just onto the expressway I noticed about 8 bright orange glowing lights, looked like radio tower lights.

Very bright(not blinding or had to squint) but brighter than stars. Thought at first it was like a tower or something , but then i thought, no way....no towers here, just slightly north of mount pleasant, where no buildings are and the lights were spanned to long and far apart to be a tower of some sort. This is when i pointed it out to my family of 5 in the car with me (even drove back the next day to make sure, and nothing was there) Lights seemed relatively low, as about 2 -3 miles ahead, we could no longer see them. Lights were very orange, no changing colors, did not move at all, looked very evenly spaced, not one on top of another, but started low and then inclementedly climbed, then 3 evened out(straight/level), then started to inclement back up higher.

Extremely similair to these pictures:

Researched online to see if anything else was posted, seen alot of people over seas talking about how these are the chinease lanterns, and they might have been. However, they just seemed to bright and "still" to be these, and the top ones were very high in the sky. Still way to orange of a color and way to bright/large, to be chinease lights/lanterns i feel.

Unfortuneatly i did not take a picture because i was in awe and just happened so fast and i did not want to look away.
