Message: I had seen something similar in almost exactly the same area a few months ago. Driving home with my husband and daughter I noticed 5 to 6 lights in the sky fairly close and pretty good sized, like headlights on a car about 1/4 of a mile away. All completely horizontal to each other. Bright yellowish orange lights and they seemed to travel North all together and then disappeared one at a time until they were all gone. My husband said he thought he saw sparks coming off the lights and thought they looked more like fire balls. I did not see this and they looked like lights to me. Our daughter who is 11 was very shaken up.
The episode I saw months earlier, was similar but the lights did not disappear, and started lower in the sky (at first I thought it was a tractor with lights on top) and they were white. They moved East as they rose higher in the sky over the town of Pierson until they became too small to see. I stopped the car on a hill and watched them move away. Both times the lights were almost directly over the very small town of Pierson. That night it was just me.
