|Bright, blinking star -like objects moving from the western horizon toward the east were observed.
I would like to report an unusual sighting witnessed by 8 adults on Sunday night September 2, 2007 in Delhi (a western township of Cincinnati, Ohio). It was 9 p.m. and we were sitting on our deck. I noticed 2 blinking, bright star-light objects moving from the western horizon in a straight line toward the east. They were followed by 4 to 6 more similar objects. Then numerous blinking lights appeared traveling or following the lead lights. At one point they appeared to be zigzagging still traveling west to east. The blinking was at about two blinks per second.
After they passed 45 degrees overhead they grouped together. Then another group appeared in the western horizon traveling west to east. Meanwhile the first group paused till the second group approached and then they continued on to the west and out of our sight. We estimate from 80 to 100 of the blinking white lights. The event lasted 2 to 4 minutes.
We are professional, respected adults who live and work in our community. I am a grade school teacher. I have taught 5th grade astronomy. I am familiar with the night sky. This was very unusual. I would appreciate some information or feedback concerning the event.
