Full Description & Details
I woke up around 3:50am this morning and went out on the deck of our vacation home. I saw a reddish colored light stream across the night sky from left to right (northeast to southwest) over the shore and dissappear. At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, as I have never seen a light do this in the sky before, then it happened again! It happened a total of 12 times, and over the course of 2 hours, my relative also witnessed these lights with me. She also saw an amber color light appear in the northeast sky then shoot very rapidly across the sky and dissappear. She also saw this more than once. We also witnessed a white light come up over the ocean, do a very fast loop in the sky and shoot south at a very high rate of speed until it was out of sight completely. Neither one of us has ever seen lights in the sky like this, and we have both seen meteor showers, and this was not a meteor shower. These lights would appear, move across the sky, and then dissappear again. We also knew these lights were not airplanes, as an airplane appeared from the MB Airport, and the lighting, shape, and size of the plane were completely different from what we were seeing here. These lights were very unusual, fast moving, and to far away to be planes. They literally looked like some kind of flying stars... So weird. I see in researching these lights that we were not the only ones in this area to see these lights early this morning.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
no, these were lights, or shooting stars, definately not man made planes or balloons

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
never heard much about them, always thought they were in one's imagination until i saw this with my own eyes
again, this is a first time occurance for myself and my family member. Struck us both as very unusual activity in the early dawn sky.
