Reported: 2/10/2014 12:22:17 AM 00:22
Location: Lahaina, HI
Duration: 4 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Two constant, non-flashing, red lights separated by 30 degrees tracked in tandem W to E at altitude of 4000+'.
2 ruby-red and steady lights observed moving W to E over the Pailolo Channel between islands of Maui and Molokai at altitude in excess of 4000' as evidenced by being observed through a broken deck of clouds at referenced altitude.
Lights were first observed about 40 degrees above horizon and were separated by about 30 degrees, maintaining a consistent distance between them as they tracked Eastward.
Lights simultaneously and abruptly turned to the North and disappeared, simultaneously, from view in clear skies.
Lights were observed through 8 x 50 binoculars and what may have been a fuselage illuminated by the red lights may have been observed.
Lights were constant, no standard port/starboard aircraft running lights were observed.
Lights tracked in an area different from normal inter-island air carrier routes.
