Shape: Formation
Duration:30 seconds
White dim lights in formation similar to constallation.

On the westside of Wichita I observed what I believed to be a small formation of stars. These stars/lights were very similar to the shape of a constalation. I noticed, however, that these lights were very close to one another not spaced out at all. The lights were white and slightly dim, like dimmer stars, and could see about 8-10 of them. I kept staring at the object(s). It was static and did not move for a moment. I looked at the clock and noted that it was 12:37. Then the object(s) started to glide slowly to the ground. I told the driver to start driving faster because the ojects view was lost behind some trees. As we followed it, it looked as if though either the oject was rotating from left to right or as if the light formations were moving. I noticed at this point that it seemed a little darker than the sky. I call it an object because the lights seemed to be in sync with each other. as it slowly descended, it quickly disappeared. And then as soon as I couldn't see it anymore, I thought to myself " I want to see it again" instantly, there was a line of light overhead that was white and very thin. similar to a shooting star, but instead just a line not a streak. we had pulled off of the road at this point.. we waited but it didn't return. I did not hear any sounds or feel any strange sensations.. we both dismissed this as some sort of military base test. I have never seen anything like this before in real life.
