Location: Fort Worth, TX
|An object made up of 5 white lights in a V shape moved across the sky at a steady pace.
I was observing the stars when I noticed 5 lights, about the same magnitude as the brightest stars, moving across the sky headed directly South. They never varied their formation or speed and traversed half the sky within about 30 seconds.
There were no unusual changes in direction or, if seperate crafts, break in formation. There were no red/green flashing lights one expects from an airplane. The white lights could not have been landing lights since the object was moving away from me.
The object was moving at probably 2 or 3 times the speed of the typical sattelite. Also, moving directly South is an unlikely path for a sattelite, much less a formation of 5.
Also, it was not moving in the direction of the V, it appeared to be moving sideways. In other words, the direction of travel was toward one arm of the V.
There was no sound and within half-a-minute it had disappeared in the horizon.
