Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Some something that was not explainable.

11pm or so we were driving home from Canton on 77 North. When we crossed to Route 8 we saw some odd bright orange lights in the sky. Almost directly over head. After the first 5 or so that we noticed we decided to pull over so we did not get into an accident. We stopped on Perkins street to get out and watch the "show". the came in groups of 5-10. all going the same direction at the same speed. We were under them at this point. We would think it was over but then another wave would go over head. My husband and I thought maybe wedding balloons luminaries but no lights were flickering and they were not floating. these lights were steady moving pretty fast... not meandering like a balloon in the wind---there was not any wind that night. We could see other people "rubbernecking", 1 other guy stopped and we all watcehd together. it was really amazing and scary at the same time.
