Peyia, Paphos (Cyprus)

Shape: Light | Duration: 4 minutes

Formation of red lightsAlthough currently with family in Cyprus, I am a citizen of the United Kingdom.This very evening myself an four other members of our family witnessed two square formations of light in the evening sky. These formations were approximately two miles south of Peyia.Each formation comprised of four bright circular red lights, one in each corner of the square. As I have said, there were two of these formations. The lights appeared to be identical in colour and size. Even the formations were at the same altitude, but were maybe a mile away from each other. Commercial airlines were above the area heading both toward and away from the Island and I would say that the air traffic was medium-busy. It appeared that the lights were below these aircraft, so I would say that these lights were at between 5,000 to 10,000 feet in the sky.These eight lights (one for each corner of the two formations) remained constant in strength and did not pulse or flicker and neither of the formations moved (they appeared to 'hover' in the sky as aircraft were passing them). The weather conditions were fine and for the entire 4 minutes of which we viewed these lights nothing obscurred our sight. Although a few photographs were taken, none actually managed to successfully capture the lights. We were unable to notice any sound from the lights. After a breif period, the lights just 'went', as though somebody had flicked a switch.Although not linked to the above, I witnessed something similar in 2002 in Norfolk, UK. Then it was a single red light moving slowly across the sky.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD))
