Duration:Less than 1 min
I saw what a first appeared to be a satellite but it was being followed by three lights in a V formation and then another 3 lights in a V formation.

I was sitting outside on my steps looking up at the sky when I thought at first I was seeing a shooting star. Immediately I realized that it was not one but a satellite. I was looking South East when I first saw the object. It was travelling at a fairly fast rate of speed from East to West at about 75 to 80 degrees above the horizon. I then saw following the object 3 more lights of the exact same size in a V formation following the first object, moving at the exact same speed and at the same height in the sky. Then following the first group of 3 was another group of 3 lights in a V formation following the previous lights at the same speed and in the same position in the sky. All the lights were of the same intensity and appeared to be somewhat blurred. They did not strobe so I assume they were not airplanes. I got off the steps and followed them moving in the sky until the street light from behind a tree made it impossible to track them. I was wearing a personal CD player so I did not hear if there was any sound or not. My impression was they were flying very high in the sky.
