Shape: Oval
Duration:5 seconds
Fast quiet objects moving in formation with unheard of speed and precision.

It was a typical night staring out my bedroom window with my dog at my side. I was looking out my window facing what would be north and suddenly saw moving at an incrediable rate speed about 6 to 8 bright white oval shaped discs low on the horizon (it was dark outside at the time). It was amazing and at first and did not comprehend what I had just seen. I actually remembered rubbing my eyes afterwards in disbelief! The astounding speed and quitness of these ufo's was just incredible (window was opened). The distance of these objects appeared to be far off as the shapes were small but very distinct. I sat there and tried to understand what it might have been in those 5 or so seconds (it felt longer). It was a steady speed and I had the advantage of a broad playing field in the sky to see the trip. I tell you, I have never ever seen anything like it. I recently saw, two summers ago, a small meteorite enter the earth's atmosphere (orange with lots of afterburn behind it) and it couldn't compare to the speed of that event burned long ago into my mind! I have never before made public this event to anyone as I thought it would be shund upon or laughed at. But now after all these years, I can still paint an exact picture as I think about it everytime I hear or see ufo information. And, to all of those thinking, it wasn't a meteor shower, as it was too deliberate of formation and moving parralel to the horizon.
