Location: Delphi, IN
Shape: Formation
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
5 bright orange lights in a straight line. Disappeared and reappeared farther to the west.

Approximately 9:00 pm

Five bright orange lights in a straight line appeared in the sky for approximately 10-15 seconds. The lights disappeared from view for a short period of time only to reappear a short distance to the west. After 10-15 seconds, the lights disappeared again. After approximately 1 minute, one large bright orange light appeared farther to the west. Commercial aircraft with flashing lights could be seen moving elsewhere in the sky. I checked Flight Radar 24 and could find commercial aircraft, but nothing in vicinity to the lights I observed.

Grissom AFB is east of this location. Perhaps it was a military aircraft dropping flares? I did not perceive any vertical motion as though something was falling towards the ground.

I attached a History Channel picture for reference. This is similar to what I observed.
