Location: Williston, VT
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Stationary diagonal line of white lights NE of Williston, above horizon.

Sighting corroborated with 3 independent witnesses at different locations.

A line of 5-7 bright lights in a perfect horizontal line (approx. 45 degree angle) was observed low over the horizon northeast of Williston, VT. The sky was clear (cloudless) and in the twilight, the lights were significantly brighter than the faint stars behind them.

The row of lights were stationary in the sky and the relative position of one light to the next did not change for the minute I was able to observe it. Some of the lights appeared brighter than others, but the overall intensity of each light remained the same. All lights were white and there were between 5 and 7 of them.

As I was watching, the lights simultaneously faded away, but the stars in the background remained visible, so this was not simply due to a passing cloud or fog. There was no sound.
