Shape: Chevron
Duration:15 seconds
Single, fast, randomly moving object intercepted by large, fast object

My companion and I were stargazing at the beach while on vacation. Suddenly above and somewhat behind us a single starlike dot began darting around the sky in a random path. It moved extremely quickly, much faster than any satellite or craft know to us move. We saw the individual dot for about 5 seconds. We watched it move behind us, when, we noticed another shape made up of about 10 points of white light in a chevron formation with a somewhat soft point seem to intercept the single dot. The larger shape passed from a far point behind us, all the way over us, then disappear into the horizon in about 10 seconds. While there were no visible clouds, the sky was partly hazy or fuzzy. The stars did not appear very clearly. The object we saw was slightly dimmer but the same color as the stars and satellites we saw pass overhead.
