Location: Birmingham (UK/England),
Shape: Light
objects that appear as stars 'dancing' in the sky.

I witnessed a white light which appeared at first to be a satelitte moving overhead at great speed,in a southerly direction. However, after it reached an arc of approx 50 degrees from the horizon, the object rapidly slowed and then curved sharply to the east. The object then hovered in a random-dancing motion before halting to a stationary position. Then, to the north of this object, i notice two similar objects, parallel to each other, moving overhead-north at satelitte speed. These two objects then simultaneously changed directions by an angle of approx 40 degrees in opposing directions, appearing to cross paths and flew off, one to the north-west & one to the north east. Another object then appeared close to the stationary object, travelling towards the east. This object looked identical to the first object and was again, moving in a 'random zig-zagging' motion, as if dancing in the sky. The brightness of this object then became very intense for about 5 seconds. It then dimmed and 'shot-off' at 'satillite speed' towards the north east.
