Shape: Formation
Duration:10 seconds
rectanglar outline made up of dark dots.

A formation of about 80 tiny, dark dots configured in a pattern of lines forming two long sides and one short side of a rectangle, short side uppermost.

Seen at 1730 hours on March 1st, 2007, for about 10 seconds. Sighted low in the Northwest sky, just above the Sun, then faded out. No obvious changes in, or movement of objects.

Witness is a freelance science writer, with experience in astronomical observing.

Might have passed for a distant flock of birds, if not for the highly regular, rectangular shape. Dots were barely discernable a separate objects, and rectangular outline was dim against the background of the sky.
