Duration: 1-2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Mysterious White-Blue Balls of Light
I was sitting in the bed of a truck with a group of eight of my friends in front of one of their houses sometime between 10:00p.m. and 11:00p.m., when I looked up and saw a ball of white-blue light appear in the sky for a split second and then disappear.
About ten minutes later I saw another flash of light appear in the same way as the first and last for about a second, again like the first.
About five minutes after that one of my friends saw the same kind of light that I had described earlier that night, but he witnessed the light make a "u" shaped turn and disappear. This light also lasted only about a second or two.
These are not the first lights in the sky our group of friends have seen. One of my friends has seen numerous lights like the ones we saw last night (the 13th) and I also saw a light appear in the sky a couple weeks ago while we were at a bonfire on the edge of town. This light looked like when you take a picture of any light source, but move the camera while taking it and are left with a squiggly line of light. This light also appeared for only a second or two, but was moving.
I've seen shooting stars before but the balls of light were too bright, quick, blue-white and sudden to be shooting stars and the line of light was nowhere near straight (squiggly).
