Location: Penfield, NY
Shape: Circle
Duration: ~10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I got up to use the bathroom and saw a ring of maybe 8 lights to the northwest, about the size of a bright, large star. At first I thought it was a plane but it stayed still and no flashing red lights. Then I thought maybe it was a helicopter, but twice it moved extremely fast, almost like a flash, then stayed put. Still no flashing red lights. I went out on the deck and watched it for a couple of minutes then came upstairs to get my iPad to photograph it. By that time it only looked like a very bright star and no separate lights in a ring like several minutes before. When I videoed it it flashed all over, but that could be because of my unsteadiness holding the iPad. Still, very weird.
