|Formation of 6 or 7 fast star-like objects in the skies above Kent UK.
Thought I’d take a look at the International Space Station due to pass overhead at 22:53. A clear sky with the usual one-a-minute plane traffic out of Gatwick towards the north. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed a formation of about 6 (maybe 7) star-like shapes (no it wasn’t the Pleiades!), at about magnitude 3 flying in a WSW direction. They were only visible for about 5 seconds in the area of Aquarius/Pisces. They were quite faint, there was no sound and my impression was that they were fast. That was it, A couple of minutes later I saw the space station and a meteor to boot!
