I was alone outside – full moon, stars. Was observing Orion when noticed lights (stars, I thought) moving East to West. I called for my wife to come when lights appeared numerous and unstopping. They flew in unison, in tight formation, several (dozen or so) dimmer lights around a central brighter light.
Little cloud cover, but some lights flew UNDER clouds, while their formation flew OVER clouds, always the same speed.
We heard and saw 2 commercial flights into Canada, saw visible contrail in FULL MOON light, and heard planes. Also observed their flashing lights. THe lights CLOSEST to planes, STOPPED. Then, once planes moved past, they resumed flight – Westward.
We tried to video tape, but only have small digital camera. Not good video, but good AUDIO of our reaction. During this time, we counted as many as 100 lights, but there were many more.
During event I became increasingly excited as I realized what we were witnessing. My wife brought me binoculars, but they provided little more than a closeup of a bright circle that moved steadily west. Their speed was steady, though not fast, about as fast as airliners traveled.
NO PLANES FLEW IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS THE LIGHTS DURING THIS EVENT.
Objects flew West and we lost sight of them. I called my pastor to describe what we saw, so someone would know.
