“All of the sudden my friend spots a big bright, circular light in the sky,  just stationary a little bit above the horizon,” the reporting witness stated.

But then they watched as the object appeared to split into multiple parts.

“As we watched it, about one minute later it splits into three orbs, all the same size and shape.”

The multiple parts appeared to make a shape.

“They make a triangle, one on bottom and the other two even split on top.”

The object then seemed to split again.

“Then it split from four circles to five circles to six circles in no uniform pattern. This happened over the course of about four to five minutes. Then the six orbs/circles stayed stationary in the air until we drove out of view about five to eight minutes later.”
