Shape: Unknown | Duration: 5-minutes

Two horizontal rows of bright amber lights in the sky having no sound, after approximately 5 minutes they disappeared.My husband, my son and myself saw lights in rows or formation in the sky. My husband, taller than I, saw approximately 16 lights. He saw them first. When he realized it was not the moon or any star, he called me ( approximately 2 minutes).When I went onto the front porch, I saw in the sky, in the timberline, approximately 12 or more lights in the sky. The lights were in two horizontal rows or appeared to be. I could make out approximately 6 lights or more in a row. The lights were sort of amber in color, but very bright.The lights were too far for me to see any particular shape to the formation other than straight lines. My first thought was stadium or ballpark lights, we watched for approximately 1 to 2 minutes.I listened and could hear no sound other than the air conditioner and the television. I grabbed my shoes and took off for our truck to get our binoculars so that I could get a better look. I grabbed the binoculars and took off down our road at a fast walk or trot. My husband was following about 20 foot behind and our son had stopped at the end of the drive. I had gone approximately 40 foot just getting ready to look with the binoculars when the lights went out. Just like flipping a switch. Our son came onto the front porch a few seconds after I went out. He thought it was flares or something. So, he saw the lights. He also mentioned that we should check that area regarding the livestock. I called the local Sheriff's office and the State Police to see if anyone had called in a sighting or saw something unusual. Both departments said, no. We lived in a rural area. Very small and very quiet. We have lived here for 2 years we go out at nigjt to listen.There is wildlife in this area and we have livestock. To date we have never seen anything like what we saw tonight. We are close to Fort Smith, Arkansas which has a small airport and an "Air National Guard" we are used to occasional sights and sounds of some of these type aircraft. What I saw tonight did not fit into any previously seen or heard aircraft. I wish I could have gotten closer before the lights went out. I'm 51 years of age, my husband is 53 and our son is 15.
