She said: “I walked oᴜt of the grocery store with my family and һаррeпed to notice the lights.
”We watched for a moment, I had watched approximately six military helicopters fly over that area that same morning so thought maybe it was them returning.
“As the lights got closer there was no sound so I knew they were not helicopters.
“That’s why I decided to grab my phone and take a few photos.
