I was doing some observations for my astronomy class tonight and I saw something very strange. I was looking west about forty five degrees above the horizon, I was trying to identify some constellations for my astronomy project notebook. I looked down at my star chart for a minute and then looked back up. It was then that I saw the objects, I noticed them because they were moving across my field of vision right to left. At first I thought it was a plane going really fast but there were no aircraft warning lights on them at all. What I saw was three spheres' all aligned vertically. They were not bright at all, they seemed to be a dull gray with a haze around them. The objects were not bright like a star or meteor. Once I realized they were not planes or a meteor I felt uneasy, I have never seen anything like them. The three objects flew perfectly in a striaght line. I ruled out a meteor because of the dull light and they flew straight. The objects changed course almost vertical and disappeared, that is what freaked me out, they went straight up. There is no way that was a meteor, military plane or weather balloon, I have never seen anything do that before.
