Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The lights were white in color although not very bright...kind of dimmed. But that might have been from the haze in the sky. They looked round.
Size of Object(s)
If I held my arms out I think my fingers would've been between 1/2 and 1 inch across...maybe less.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It was in an urban area, just south of a larger city (35,000). There is a papermill to the Northwest (about 1/2 mile) and a power plant to the Southwest (about 3 miles). We also have a skihill to the Northwest (about 4 miles) and they are doing road construction to the Northwest/West of us (4 miles). The lights, however, were right above my house and we live right in the middle of a small village. The area I live in has a lot of trees and is hilly.
Full Description & Details
During the early morning hours of March 5th (I think) I looked outside my living room window to see if the snow, that we were supposed to get, had started falling. The sky was partly cloudy and hazy. I could see some stars. Something caught my eye in the sky. It was a round light that was going around in a large circle. I decided to wake my husband up to see if he saw it too. He did. I then went outside and directly to the North of the first light were four other lights...all going around in a circle, though a much smaller circle than the first one, and meeting in the middle. If their path would've stayed lit it would've looked like a four leaf clover. When the lights got to the middle area they sped up a bit. I stood outside for a while watching the lights and then went back inside. It was about 2 or 3 in the morning.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
I'm not too sure. My hubby suggested that it could've been from the road construction they were doing on the highway. I had worked for the Sheriff's Department a while ago and I thought that maybe we had a new business opening in the area since I remember taking lots of calls of "strange lights" in the sky. The new business was using spotlights for their grand opening. We haven't had any new businesses open in our area. Also, there wasn't any light coming from the ground up to the object, like a light stream. It was just the light.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have always been open to the idea of UFO's, although I have never experienced anything. I have watched a lot of shows, on TLC and other channels like that, and thought it could be a possibility. I'm still open to the idea that the lights I saw might have been from a UFO....I'm just not sure. It was really wierd!
