Shape: Light
Duration:5 mins
3 "blinking" objects traveled at different times from the same side across the sky fairly fast.

I was taking out the trash for my mom and coming back in when i saw a "blinking" light going pretty fast through the sky. I thought it might be a jet so I kept walking. Right before I went in I started to think a second and realized I heard no jet sound. So i watched it go through the sky as I walked down the street following it, trying to listen for a sound. I couldn't hear any. I got a little freaked out, but thought my imagination was getting the best of me so I started walking back home. On the way I saw another one coming the same direction from the same side {right side facing down my driveway). I thought maybe the craft had spun around so I looked back and in the distance I saw the other one I had previously seen. So I stopped and watched it also. It also flew fairly fast, and faster than any helicopter or commercial plane I had seen. Again I listened, but I still heard no sound. I stood and watched the two crafts go off onto the horizon. That happened within 2 minutes. I stood in awe wondering what I had seen for about 30 seconds when I saw another "blinking" light go through the sky from the same direction on the left side of me. It was going a bit faster then the other 2 and I watched and listened as carefully as I could as it also traveled to the horizon. It crossed the whole sky in about 15-25 seconds. I stood there for about 5 minutes after, watching for any other objects but didnt see any. I coudn't tell the shape of it at all. All I saw was a "blinking" light. By blinking I mean, I saw a white light flash at different times. It definitely didn't look like an actual light blinking. It looked more like the objects were spinning and a piece of the object was shiny or a metal of somthing that reflects light. It looked as if that piece of the object was reflecting a light source from which I could not tell. The moon wasn't out at the time so I figured it wasnt that. The sky was completely clear so I don't think it was a spotlight on the clouds either. Thats all I know! . The o nly observer was myself. I'm 17 years old, white male, I go to Woodlawn High School, I've never seen had any spotting before.
