Description (In Witness's Own Words): I was laying in bed trying to get to sleep. I looked out my window, and saw a reddish orange light, about twice as bright as the north star. At first I thought it was Mars, but with the lights from the city, knew it couldn't be that bright. As I continued to look out my window to the west, I saw two more of these lights come out from behind a tree in my neighbor's yard, and they stayed the same distance apart, which in my field of vision appeared to be about 3 inches. I jumped out of bed and went to my back porch to smoke and see what it was. When I got outside, the one light that was not moving was gone and one of the two lights that moved up and south were gone. The other had stopped and started getting dimmer, and looked like it was breaking apart, because I saw what looked like small pieces of light falling from it as it got dimmer. I then came inside to see if there was anything on the news about any problems with the space station or any meteor sightings.

Investigator's Notes: I am not sure what the witness sighted. He could have been fooled by bright stars or planets and when he went outside two lights disappeared because the stars/planets were blocked by the trees. The light that he saw moving and breaking apart could have been a meteor. However, more information is needed to make either of these two conclusions. I have written to the witness to obtain more information. Any updates will be posted.
