Location: Athrugiriya (Sri Lanka),
|Saw 6 blinking stationary Stars in a straight line towards west/north west, however these were bigger than normal stars. Their colors varied from pinkish, orange to silver. Blinking was more pronounced than normal stars. After some time 2 stars disappeared. Of the remaining 4 stars, the 2nd star moved towards the adjacent star. After some time, of the 3 remaining stars 2 disappeared. Lastly, the 2 that got together faded away. From the time they were observed first, the whole episode took about 15-20 mts. Except for the second star that moved towards the first, all the others were stationary. It was a clody day, no other stars could be seen, the moon (believe day after full moon) shone through the clouds at times. What was unusual was the stars were aligned in a straight line, one star moving towards the other and pronounced blinking. Also, they were stationery, except the 2nd star.
Background of the observers: Phd in Economics, 3 children going to school(ages 6 to 12), 2 medical doctors, housewife, pool attendents 2, helper
