Ok, last night I was at work at the casino. In our employee cafeteria, there are huge floor to ceiling windows looking at downtown and facing south towards mt Washington and the flats. Well, right over that area of the south side slopes I guess, I saw 4 very bright lights sitting still in a obtuse rectangular shape. I know the skyline and surrounding landscape pretty well now and I've never seen those lights before. I showed somebody else and he was freaked out. It was between 9-9:20 pm on one of my breaks. I could not get a video or picture from inside and by the time my next break came they were gone. This is 100% accurate... Only I do not know what those lights were. Anyone else see them!?

Negative, each light was spread out at least a 1/2 mile apart from each other. 4 separate lights which was in a formation that was like a rectangle but were eerily still. There's no building that big or towers in that direction.

You forgot those. It's highly possible it was a UFO, after all it stands for Unidentified Flying Object and if none of you were there to identify it, it's unidentified to this particular individual.

Thank you. Some people can't read what is right in front of them. I also just wanted to know if anybody else saw them, but i think it's a big no lol.

Actually what I saw was above them... Or very close. They were much brighter than the stadium lights, but thanks for the info though
