Glowing football shaped objects flying in straight line formation wing tip to wing tip over Daytona Beach, FL

Sitting on the beach looking up at the stars. I saw what looked like 4 soft white light glowing football shaped objects flying in a perfectly straight line, wing tip to wing tip. They did not make any noise. There were traveling from west to east heading out over the Atlantic Ocean.

I didn't see them until they were directly overhead the beach. They appeared to be flying at about the same level as the lowest cloud tops. It was a mostly clear night, but a few puffy clouds were scattered about the sky. The moon was lighting up the beach.

I pointed them out to my wife and said, "Look at those things flying in formation." She said, "That's just a plane." Then I said, "No. That's four separate objects flying in a line, wing tip to wing tip." Then I watched as the left end object swung out wide from the formation and then shortly thereafter rejoined the formation exactly where it had been. The wing tips were exactly spaced between the objects and the speed was exactly the same for all of the objects. If those were airplanes I had never seen the bottom of airplanes glow in a soft white light and the shape was not an airplane shaped even a reflection off of an airplane would not look like that.

The flying objects stayed in a perfect line formation, wing tip to wing tip and suddenly faded into the blackness of space a few seconds after the left wing object rejoined the formation. I will never forget it. I had never seen anything like it. I am 51 years old. My wife was 45 years old at the time.

I will never forget the soft white glow crossing the dark sky directly overhead. I didn't get scared or anything. There were lots of people out on the beach that night. But I don't know if anyone else looked up to see what we saw. In case it was a plane, I kept listening for an engine noise, but never heard a thing.

I tried to call the talk show last night and talk about this, but could not get through. So now you have my true story!
