WASHINGTON - Dozens saw floating lights around Forest Glen Saturday night near the Beltway and Georgia Avenue.

Calls to police started coming in around 9:45 p.m., Montgomery County Police say, describing a low-flying aircraft in the area.

Callers to WTOP say there were solid orange lights in the sky moving south.

The Federal Aviation Administration wasn't aware of anything in the area, police say, so the objects remain unidentified.
