Further Description of Sighting: Looking at sky for Moon(Jan. 2014 has 2 full moons), I noticed 2 bands of rotating orange lights moving slowly towards me. 1st thought 2 aircraft in wing formation. But they slowly moved to one on top of other and both then slowly moving straight up. I then noticed a 3rd one moving from same direction as 1st two, (I called for my 2 friends in doors to come see, I was on front deck of beach house).
As they joined me on deck, then too saw all 3 craft. As we stood watching, the 3rd craft aligned under 1st two and it slowly moved up too. Then we all saw the 1st craft(seemly not very high, maybe 1000ft(a guess) slowly disappear. As moving up, it seemed to go behind, or into the night sky. Like something moving behind a curtain.
That’s when we all noticed the 4th craft coming from same direction as others to now join them in same up position. We all noticed there was no sound. Even the ocean was clam. No loud surf crashing. We watch until all 4 crafts moved up where 1st had gone and simply seemed to vanish. About 15 mins we watched. None of us have ever seen these craft before. The craft moved slowly, no sudden moves, except flying slightly upward to a point where they moved straight up.
