Location: Newark, DE
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
After running at the Glasgow park off of 896 and rt 40, my friend texts me and asks, "Dude did you see those 8 orange lights leaving the park?"

I told him I did not b/c I was not paying great attention as I had taxed myself heavily in the workout. But he distinctly saw 8 orange, dull colored lights in the distance and could not hear any noise, then they all started to disappear one by one.

This happened approximately at 9 PM Eastern Standard time during a dingy colored full moon on a clear night. Temperature is in the 80s at the time with about 95% humidity. There were more mosquitoes than average out tonight and I recall some strange activity among animals in the area.

This actually reminds me now of a sighting I saw myself about 2 or 3 months ago while driving towards Wilmington on 95 North, probably a few miles from exit 7. I remember driving and seeing a strange rotating craft appear on my right with 3 distinct lights, it was hard to see, but it appeared that one of the lights was changing colors from red to green and I had my windows down but I could not hear any distinct afterburner sounds. I was driving most likely around 70-75 mph and I lost the craft as trees began to appear in the foreground. I have also witnessed strange crafts/lights in the Florida area.
