Location: Centreville, MD
Shape: Light
Duration: 45 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Hovering light in the sky with disappearing lights toward the ground and shadows.

Woke up around 3 a.m. to what sounded like an animal screeching. Looked out bedroom window but didn't see anything. Looked up to the sky. At first glance it could have appeared as a star but I realized it was moving. Watched the "light" (yellow in color) for awhile and saw it hover right, left and down slightly.

Woke my husband so that he could confirm what I was seeing and he did. He also confirmed what I was already thinking...that occasionally there would be a flash of light to the left or right of this main light. The light never moved much aside from the slight hovering movements.

After about 30 mins I saw flashes of white lights just above the tree line behind my house but in the distance. There was about 4 or 5 of them. Each would continuously flash. One moved more right away from the others and slightly up in the air while the others disappeared. I continued to keep an eye on the main light that was still moving slightly in the same spot. When directly looking at it, I didn't see much around it. When I looked to the right it appeared like there was a shadow in the sky to the left of the light. I couldn't make out what it was and when I looked directly at it, I could not see it.
