Did anyone else see the weird lights in the sky in the mt vernon area? I was outside with my boyfriend when we noticed 4 huge lights resembling spot lights going around and around in the night sky, then they would meet in the middle and join one big light, then go back out to four different lights, this kept going on and on for a while. In a pattern. Was just wondering if anyone else saw them. They disappeared as suddenly as they showed up. There was no helicopter or beams of light coming from the ground. They seemed to be hovering above the clouds.

Yes, I did. I saw it around 4 in the morning. What woke me up was my dog barking and with so many break ins around here I got up to see what was going on and I saw it too. I first thought that it was a cop looking for someone with a spot light but then figured out it was coming from the sky. So no you aint crazy there really was.

No, we tried to get a picture, but the lights weren't bright enpough. I saw it too, did the lights you saw do the same thing I seen? So very strange. I still wonder what it was.

that's what these lights do. They rotate, circle, come together , move apart. I promise they'll be out tonight also. Just watch and see......or drive over that way. You will see them better the closer you get.

WE lit our fireworks on the 5th so my wife cold be there (work). I didn't see the lights but my wife was about 120 yds. from where I was and she did see them. Thing is they could not have been ground based lighting. Where we live there is no way we could see them surrounded by hills with old timber sitting on them all. She thinks it was police/military drug searching choppers. There was some chatter on her grandmothers scanner alluding to something like that later in the evening. My thing was what the hell would pot jumpers be doing looking around at night? So that made 0% sense to me. What she described sounds same as yours but not real rhythmic. And they moved around much more than any ground based spot light when she explained where she had seen them and how they moved. I mean you can't cross a hollow to both ridges with light pointed down when you see them from both hills. With a spot light you would see the beam headed to it's origin. With all the firework smoke we made (I spent a lot on fireworks ^_^). Some of that scanner chatter mentioned someone reporting gun fire with the reply they didn't see any gun fire but did see some pretty neat fireworks (thanks scanner people!). So maybe that was what it was, choppers out at night. But I never heard any helicopter sounds that night and if they would have been looking for...whatever they would have been pretty low flying I would think.

So I have no idea what it was, but I can say with pretty strong certainty the origin of the lights was not on the ground. I'm pretty glad someone else seen them. I was starting to think it was just my wife going nuts. She explained it to me and every possible way I had to explain i toff she pointed something else out that made it not work. So I guess it's a mystery...

I doubt very seriously it was lights coming from Lincoln Co. If that was the case everyone would see it. Hell, I am almost in brodhead and I dont see lights coming from the brodhead fair..

I live in Forest, Ohio... Just a little town. My daughter was at a bomb fire last night, September 27, 2014 aprox. 12 miles away from our house. She and her boyfriend were getting ready to leave around 11:20pm and noticed 4 glowing objects in the sky that were moving in a pattern and meeting in the middle and it appeared that there was like a cloud that was beneath it. The glowing objects kept within the cloud like area. About an hour after she got home she came into my room to tell me about it... I kinda laughed and said your crazy. She looked out my bedroom window and said they were still out there. I jumped out of bed woke up my husband and we all ran outside. I couldn't believe it. It was a clear night and it was just as described above. It was aprox 12:45am on September 28,2014. My husband and daughter left and drove a radius of aprox 12 miles and was able to still see this in the sky. I live in town and due to the surrounding trees and houses By 1:30am I had to walk aprox 120 ft to continue to watch it bc it began to travel north east. At the time I only could see 2 glowing objects. There were 6 of us that witnessed this. Myself and husband, my father, daughter 15yrs, daughter 13yrs, daughters friend 15yrs.
