Description: Listen to Audio Clip of Interview With Witness (MP3)
The witness stated that he and several of his neighbors were in the street enjoying the New Year's festivities and when they noticed bright erratic moving lights in the sky. The lights were about 30 degrees above the horizon and WERE NOT fireworks according to the witness reporting the sighting. The lights moved up and down, laterally, and eventually fanned out into a "U" formation. Six or Seven lights were observed. The lights were dark yellow in color. The phenomenon continued until a commercial jet flew overhead. At that time most of the lights disappeared. A couple more lights hovered shortly and then disappeared. The witness said that he and his neighbors had never seen anything like it. No sound was heard in association with the lights.

Comments: The witness provided an accurate account of his observations in his interview. Only a short segment of the interview is included in the audio above to conserve space. The witness provided good rationale that the lights were not fireworks, meteors, space debris, etc. Given his observations I don't know what was sighted. Thus far no other sightings have been reported from this area. Anyone who spotted anything is urged to file a report.
