Location: Jacksonville, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:8-10 Seconds
Two lights moving at very fast speed across sky in Jacksonville Florida during Lunar Eclipse.

Watching the Lunar Eclipse at approximately 10:55 PM on the 20th of February 2008 I was outside in my front yard where I had the lights off in a relatively dark area.

I saw two lights as stars but a bit dimmer coming from North north east going South southwest. They were traveling to my best observation much lower than what you would see during the day when trails can be seen by an airplane and much faster.

They were not blinking and moving very fast. Observation from beginning to end would be approximately 7 to 8 seconds. There was no noise whatsoever, and the lights were not one right behind the other. They were at a distance of approximately 5 degrees and one behind the lead light was to the right offset to about 2 degrees.

I immediately went online and called to give report and was instructed to give details here.

I am 35 years old and an avid sky watcher for years and this is the first time in my life that I was prompted to call because I truly did not recognize this from anything I have ever witnessed before.

Thank You..
