I saw a bright light in the evening sky that emitted approximately 6 other smaller lights and they all left at high speed.

At approximately 7:45 PM (19:45 hrs.) on the afternoon of August 31st, 2007 my wife and I walked out into our back yard. As we were standing there I looked up into the sky and saw a rather bright glowing object in the sky. I at first thought it was one of the planets, but realized it was still too early and not yet dark enough to see any stars. I told my wife I thought it was something reflecting light from the sun but it was stationary and rather large. I told her I thought maybe it might be the International Space station but I frankly do not know if that is ever visible to the naked eye. I just sensed it was unusual so I went into the house to retrieve a pair of binoculars. I returned to the backyard and looked up at the object and could see then what looked like red glowing lights around the bright center circular object. We could also see a jetliner moving through the sky and it too was reflecting some light. My wife looked at the object through the binoculars also but did not try to adjust the lenses to her eyes and did not see the detail I did. She said she could only see that it was a bright object. This is when it got very interesting. I got the binoculars back from her and as I was looking at object I saw approximately six smaller bright looking circular lights move away from the brighter object we had first seen. They moved away slowly from the center object at first and paused in a pattern around it. They then suddenly took off at high speed and simply disappeared from view. The center glowing object disappeared also. As I was telling my wife what I was seeing she looked back only to see the original object was gone and the sky was now empty in the area. I can’t say these objects were craft but I saw what I just described and have no logical explanation for it.
