Location: Melbourne (Australia),
Shape: Formation
Duration:5 seconds
formation of white lights travelling fast.

i am a 22 year old from australia and have had a few sightings of unidentified lights. this one i will tell you about, as it is the only sighting i had in which another witness was present. i was at a friends house sitting out on the front steps looking at the stars. we were only out there for about 10 minutes when i said "oh f**k look at that" and then pointed straight up above me. he looked up straight away.

what i saw was about 6 balls of light in a sort off circle formation. they just looked exactly like stars but they were brighter. they were traveling very fast and moved across the sky in the formation. they were much quicker than any aeroplane or helicopter or sattelite, but were also much slower than any shooting stars.

when i first noticed them they were already moving across the sky (i think in a north-west direction)and they then dissappeared within about 5 seconds behind clouds in the distance. while they were moving across the sky they were sort off shaking but in time with each other if u know what i mean. like they were all in sync or joined to each other or something.

when they disappeared our reaction was "awe" but i then quikly told my friend i wanted to go back inside. he told me to stay outside and we sat there for ages discussing what it was. he came to a conclusion that it was a group of white birds.

i did not. they were much to quik to be birds and to high in the sky. also their movement was nothing like birds.

if u have any information about these types of things or any reasonable suggestions on what it could have been that would be much appreciated.
