While observing the Leonid Meteor Shower I saw 7 or 8 luminous circles flying in a V formation east to west moving very fast and making no sound.

Thursday morning Nov. 18 at around 5:00 AM, I went outside to view the Leonid Meteor Shower before getting ready for work. I saw a few bright ones and was about to go back in the house when I noticed movement out of the corner of my left eye (I was facing south). I saw 7 or 8 luminous circles flying in a V or chevron formation. They were moving very fast east to west and made no sound. They covered an area about the size of my thumbnail held at arms length. The circles were not bright and had they not been moving, I probably would not have seen them. They were out of sight in about 20 seconds. Afterwards I wondered if these circles were on the underside of a large delta shaped craft since the allignment was maintained. I am 65 years old and have been interested in astronomy since I was 13. I have never seen a UFO before. The local UFON group had no reports that day. I guess I was just lucky. Lat 29/40 Long 95/29
