These were the skydivers at Hook Field practicing their night sky diving. We watched them from our backyard until the went below the tree line.

I saw it too! The initial light was weird, and hard to figure out by the action. Then, at approx. 25 degrees, from my vantage point, it broke into several lights similar to something re-entering the atmosphere. The degree of decent was inconsistent, however, and could be just what you described! They hung on the horizon for a long time though, and was quite a perplexing sight.
 
I thought they were finally coming back for me, as I have been expecting them for some time now. Wink

We saw the lights Saturday at 9:30. Skydivers would be a good explanation - however we saw the initial large light while driving north on Cin-Dayton road in Bethany (near Ameristop). The light (which had then split) was to our left and was over the Liberty Township YMCA area west of Cin-Day road. Not sure why skydivers would be dropped over a residential neighborhood. We lost them in the treeline about 2 miles south of Monroe. Was a bad weather night for skydiving (for what it's worth).

We saw them at the same time. They were prefectly north of us in line with Hook Field and we often see the landing lights of planes taking off and landing in the same direction. A lot of times during the day we can see them jumping out of the planes, free-falling, and then opening their chutes. Occasionally they will have a large American flag unfurled behind them.

I don't know whats more captivating. The video or the audio.

Female voice: Honey?

Silence.

Female voice: Honey? What is it?

Male voice: I dunno.

Female voice: You think its a UFO?

Silence.

And scene.

It was probably Obama sending in government agents to take more of our freedoms away.
