I was called outside by a friend to check out some lights in the sky. we watched red, white, and occasional green light hovering but it would quickly jerk left, right, or up, down. it was about 11 pm, july 4th, fireworks going off at distant towns so we could hear faint booming noise. we spotted it first at mid sky but 15 minutes later it was at the horizon behind occasional branches but the dimensions of this never got smaller. it looked like 2 bottom lights and one upper light. eventually, i drove my truck to the top of the hill to watch the last 4 minutes of it. very hilly terrain here but i'd guess it as was a mile away when i last saw it. about 30 years ago, another friend and i witnessed a similar vessel with one red light, super fast, close, went through trees and was about 4-5 miles from this event. i was startled then but inquisitive this time since i was unharmed for the previous event. i first thought of it as a helicopter or an airplane but no way can either one move that quick in any direction like this did.
