I awoke to take the dog out to handle its business. Once outside, I noticed multiple hovering lights, the size of a basketball. The lights changed colors and descended slowly, after at least one minute of hovering, the lights quickly ascended and changed directions from east to west, then again from west to east at a phenomenal rate of a speed. The light vanished to the east. I could not track them. I was in a state of shock. I stood outside for several minutes trying to rationalize exactly what I witnessed. I am still in a state of disbelief.
