Number of witnesses: Other people there but I was the only person looking in the easterly direction when the unusual lights appeared.
Number of objects: Approximately 5 - 6
Shape of objects: Long, narrow, rectangular very bright lights
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: Not applicable
Weather Conditions: Light breeze, full moon previous night, some light clouds (minimal)
Description: I sitting on a deck, looking in an easterly direction, watching the moon coming up across the bay. There were 6 of us but I was the only one facing east. All of a sudden, 5 - 6 long, narrow, rectangular very bright lights, at regular intervals appeared shining through a diaphanous cloud. I let out an exclamation and waited for it to appear again.
I told the others what I had seen. I realised that it couldn't be a shooting star, meteor or airplane because of its shape. I really don't know what it was and I have never seen anything like it before. It was only visible for a second or two.
Hi John. It was 2014...last week. The lights were quite high in the sky, well above the islands in the bay so nothing to do with house/car lights. Definitely not a plane either. No "stardust" like you see from a falling star. Just a brilliant flash of the long rectangular lights. I gasped as I'd never seen anything quite like it. By the way...I wasn't drinking alcohol!!! Just sparkling grapefruit juice.
Thanks for your interest.
