Duration:1 minute
8 to 12 Very bright round objects seen over Nashua, NH

From Southern Nashua looking towards Tyngsborough, MA about 8 to 10 circular objects were traveling at a relatively normal speed. The craft illuminated very brightly almost as if it were a reflection. They did not seem to be burning up in the atmosphere like a re-entry, as they were travelling too slow. There were numerous colors of the reflection/blinking, like green, red and white and each object had a glow to it and you could see each one moving when they were not blinking/shining. There was no apparent pattern to the shining, but was definately not the blinking of normal single engine plane or jet running lights or headlights. The objects travelled from a westerly to easterly direction and seemed to vanish behind clouds and did not reappear when the clouds had passed. There was a small engine plane directly overhead at the same time and was probably landing at Nashua airport around 8:50pm EST. I could not find the number for the FAA tracking station or the airport tower both located in Nashua to see if they had seen what we did on radar. The whole thing lasted about one minute, as my wife and I had time to call my In-laws outside to view the last 15-30 seconds when the objects disappeared behind the clouds.
