Follow-up by Brian Vike:

hey Brian, thanks for responding to my sighting. In response to your questions:

Color Lights-red
Size of lights- I would say best described as about the size of light on cellular tower at maybe one or two miles distance.

Other aircraft- no, not at the time, specifically looked too.

Shape- Sighting in a nutshell was short in duration, probably less than 8 seconds, and consisted of a single lighting somehow flourishing into a perfectly in line of horizontal oriented lights, either 6 or 8, just above tree top height. Can't be sure if they quickly disappeared or if road dipped and they were out of view beneath treetops. When road came back up, no sign of any type of lights or aircraft was to be seen.

Sketch- I will work on this, could do this but will need to learn to scan from printer to computer.

Lights did not flash or pulse

Story: We were driving home from church with kids in van, wife in the front seats, kids did not notice anything, as wife and I did not comment until lights disappeared as this all happened quite quickly. We were going north on mulebarn road, the road on which we live, and were only 3 or 4 miles from in very familiar surroundings. Ineresting to note is that Grissom AFB is directly in line between here and Rochester.

Thanks, please let me know if I can be of more assistance
