So i was looking out my balcony and the back deck on a summer night. I noticed the first initial light just turn on as like a lamp one solid orangeish light as seen in the video. i then stared noticing other ones faintly flashing around it after a few minutes i never thought much when i seen the first one just sitting but when i seen the others appearing I pulled out my phone to film. I witnessed with my eyes in detail the events pictured in the videos so i know that whats seen is accurate to what was happening no camera flares or shines etc. pitch black in country side. So as i continued watching and filming the once solid light became hollow like a ring and i started to notice other ones sort of splitting out of it like when cells multiply and they would appear all in different brightness's going either up or down but making crescent shapes as they appear. That continued for maybe 2-3 minutes from the initial light i seen appear in the sky as it it was turned on and it sat still then progressed into what you see in the video and explained. After it was done it formed a waning crescent moon and remained in the sky the entire night till morning and i could see the moon still in the sky during say time the next day. The color of the seen lights was a orange color similar to headlights until it changed into the moon is was a very bright moon with the normal color you see in the moon at night when its bright. There were no aircraft seen flying during the report landing or taking off as there is a small private airport a few kilometres to the North of where the video was taken. Sky was mostly clear very few clouds no rain, no wind no recent storms. I did have a weird feeling that i felt almost being watched or observed when i started recording and before i was recording only small lights were flashing around it similar to seen in the first clip solid balls not ring like also pictured later. I've never been a big UFO person but to this day that was one of the many strange things ive seen living out in the country where i can better observe the sky and the only thing I've been able to record to date. I also witnessed only via camera a second UFO seen appearing as almost blue/white energy looking thing I've never really known how to describe it i noticed it on camera while taking photos of the moon after it finished and was just sitting as the moon and when i zoomed in i seen what appeared to be "energy" as it looked like it was flowing or moving kinda like electricity and it was one strong line going horizontally slightly tiled and above was lighter lines in 2 spiked patterns that also seemed to flow with energy. i was able to observe this for about 10 minutes before it just kinda faded out slowly till it was gone it never moved any directs on made lights or changed in any was i didn't notice how it came to appear i just seen it on camera. The "moon" remained all night with no further changes after its initial ones. The videos were posted to my instagram account several years ago im trying to get the originals or save them in a better manner if i am able to i will be these are same footage just screen recorded from my page as i couldnt download the videos as files.
