Hey does anybody know what these weird lights that keep appearing & disappearing in the sky are? Has anybody even seen them, they seem to be towards the Potsdam area. It's creepy as hell seeing it. I've seen it twice tonight in two different parts of the sky. I doubt they're flares because they don't stay lit for long.
yup

There are a couple of UFO reporting websites and there were several accounts of orange fireball lights seen in the North Country beginning January 11th.

Would like to know more about the lights! Haven't seen any myself recently, but I'm born and raised in the area and grew seeing many strange lights and things in the fields. My mother grew up here also and would tell me stories of things they used to see on the farm.

Btw, if it was only 3 lights wouldn't it be the shape of a triangle? "Diamond" indicates 4 lights. Triangle formations are common in UFO sightings across the US.

Here's an interesting list of UFO sightings throughout NY, including the North Country:

no, not a triangle. They'd appear side by side, then very far apart, then sometimes all bunched up. Very odd

Not 100% sure, but approximately 93.27% sure they were F-16's from Burlington, VT. flying a night training mission, the bright orange lights were infrared flare drops, used to defeat incoming infrared missiles. Here is a website with pics:

Like I said I'm fairly sure that's what it was, I saw them also driving back to Potsdam from Waddington, only saw them momentarily...but hey you never know:-)

I saw similar lights in Malone over the fairgrounds. I saw 3 fireballs that were in a triangle like formation. They whirred around like they were changing position but ended up back in the triangle formation. Then they all dissipated all at once.

I saw them too and they're definitely flares. I used to see them all the time back home near Ft. Drum. They were close enough then to see the afterburners from the jets that were dropping them. The only appear briefly because they burn out quickly...
