I woke up before dawn and looked out my window.
Above the trees, in the distance over the ocean, there were 7 bright lights in an uneven row.
They were as big as the Moon slightly squeezed at top and bottom to be a bit of an oval.
They never moved, there was no sound and the lights were constant.
After about 15 minutes of watching, I woke my mother and we watched them together until they disappeared in the rising Sun light.
I told my aunt who lived downstairs.
For over 30 years I never thought about them until my son brought a book home from school with a picture that was almost the same as what I saw.
My mom has passed but my aunt remembered me telling her about them.
