|stared as 2 became 3 one moved off from the other 2
I was in my back garden. looking if i could see any noctilucent clouds that have been seen. and what caught my eye was 3 objects that came from the southwest they . well i thought it was a satilte that had broken up at first. and one was trailing the other. . what may me question this is that they stayed at the same distance to one another for almost the whole crossing of the sky .as i have a great almost unubsructed view. of about 90% of the shy from north to south vice versa. it was a slow movement to the north east. it started out as 2 objects seen for the most part . but as it cam pretty much over head. the third poped out out of nowhere. and it formed a straight line about with the last one in line being not as bright. and off to the east of the other 2 . and as they passed over. and headed nrth east. the one in the back of the line seem to move off to the north west ever so slowly from the other two.. now the strange thing is . the object in the rear seem to move in the same derection for better half the time in the same pace. but as it came over head.. it went more in a different direction then the other whom stayed in the same line . so in a nut shell.. at first i saw two object then for about 3mnts then out of nowhere. another just came into view.. stayed with the other two for a mint or to. in the same line thier abouts. then sem to break from the line and head off in a differnet direction all this lasted about 5 to 7 mnts. long enought for me to go into the house wake the wife and bring her out to see this.. and she stayed for a minute and said WOW went back inside . and i watched the rest for another few mnts.. no size availible as they looked like rather bright satilites i have seen many many times befor.. now this is the 2nd time in all the years that i have been stargazeing that i have seen this type of strange movement out of a satilite.. but the first time i have ever seen two or even three at once in the same line that close to one another about a inch ! aprt as i see it . just thought again this was not normal . as i am american and live very near a base. but reside in the UK. i am a well trained spotter of aircraft both military and civil. i can tell what make and t type . from a very good distance and at night i can tell what make . boeing or ect ect. by the flashing beakons. so what i had seen last night . is strange to me as this is the secound time now in the past few months something strange has passed over my house that i could not reserch to find out just what it was. well just wanted to let ya know. thanks.. nice to have a place to tell someone without them thinking your a crack pot..
