Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Formation
Duration:15 minutes
Formation of five points of lights in daylight, hovering and changing foramtion, comparable to satalites in brightness, rising up until

Kreiger Ford sponsered Mustang club of Ohio show. Perfect sky, no clouds anywhere. While enjoying the day we looked up into the colbalt blue of the overhead sky and saw a tight "Y" formation of four silver dots, each about the size of a pinhead seen from a foot or so away. First thought was they were mylar ballons, but the perfect formation, then the change to a "V" made us wonder. They were not moving much, like you would expect from a formation of planes, from their position, but hovering. Then 2 of the dots started moving in slow broad circles around the others. After this, they started to split up, slowly, and seemed to go higher and less distinct. Again, we kept thinking childs ballons, but then a commercial jet when by, quite high up so the jet looked the size of a fly from about a foot away, and the "dots" were temporarly blocked by it as it passed. Within a few minutes of this, a smaller fast jet, possibly fighter, went past from west to east, and the objects then faded from view. If it were night, if they were going left to right or some similar course, I would compare the size an luminisity to a satalite, even in the daylight, but their movement was not linear, but as described above, hovering and making un-satalite type moves.
