My in laws had gone to the ER,earlier in the evening. I came outside to smoke a cigarette and looked up towards the eastern sky and I saw a bright light about the size of a golfball. Larger than the star nearest to it. I watched for a few moments and without taking my eyes off of this light, I grabbed my cell phone out of my pocket and voice messaged my husband to come outside now. As I continued to watch it appeared to reach out towards us and retreat. It did this several times over the course of 45 minutes. During our experience my husband grabbed his spotting scope to get a better visual and he claimed there were more than one lights and that some seemed to be circling a center or main structure. We both saw this unexplained phenomenon until the light simply retracted out of sight.
