|Lights in V formation
I wanted to watch the new comet near to the Procion on the W-WS sky with my Cassagrain 5" telescope, when I attracted my attention of a chirping very quiet sound from behind the trees on the other side of the street (around 1kHz? with 5 Hz modulation), which stopped (or turned down) after appearing the object (I cannot recognize the clearly the shape, its outline was closely as a bumerang ?, with transparent body). The lights was orange in the V formation, on left side 5-6 in the sraight line and 2 on the right side. The object flew quietly from West to Eatst and I felt it has big inercia. Its way visualy crossed the Venus. But the brightness of the Venus changed only slightly (I am not sure) I was very supprised. I attach a picture, which I found on the web and it is very close to that, what I saw. The visula size of the object was similar as on the attached picture with comparation with the Moon). Only the lights was orange without any blinking or changing of the intensity. Before the object dissappeared I saw it as from the back position (still V formation) but the lights I saw in the same intensity.
