Long strand of equally spaced red lights that disappear to the center, then come out again.Long strand of red lights equally spaced across the horizon. If I could estimate the length of the object(s) I would say about a half of a mile long. At first, there were about 30 red lights equally spaced, and then the lights would disappear, meeting at the center with only about 4 red lights remaining. This occurred about 3 times pretty fast. My friend got his phone out to take a picture, but by then, the lights went down to four, one more time, and then disappeared to the southeast. The direction we were facing was east. Reminder: this was spotted in Maryland but the location of the object could have easily been in West Virginia. This was very large and unexplainable. I explained it the best I can, but I just wanted to let everyone know.
