Location: Dallas, TX
Shape: Formation
Duration:6 min total
Midnight 10/27/08 Dallas,TX. Two formations - semicircular & v-shaped. 1st moved from north to south. 2nd moved from east to west.

Starting at 11:53 as I lay on the porch of my four-story townhouse in downtown Dallas. I was looking up at the night sky and I saw a semicircular object moving from north to south. The shape looked like an incomplete circle of lights that was missing about 1 or 2 lights that would have completed the circle. The single lights that made up the incomplete circle were blue-white and circular, and there were probably about 7 of them. It was moving across the sky at about the same speed that a plane would but it was moving in very sudden, subtle movements and it wasn't exactly moving in a straight line. It also seemed like it would stop on a dime and then continue as it was. Also, when I looked at the formation it looked as if I were squinting my eyes and looking at a streetlight (it was blurry), but as I looked at the stars near the formation, I could see them clearly. They continued on their path for about 2-3 minutes until they disappeared on the other side of my roof. After that I saw another formation moving from west to east. This was probably at 12:30-12:45. It was in a V-shape and it wasn't as blurry as the first one. Again it was moving at about the same speed as an airplane. These could have been jets in a very precise formation heading somewhere but it was completely inaudible. This formation seemed to move in more of a straight line but again they had some sudden, subtle movements that lead me to believe that they were not airplanes. There were probably 7 circular white-orange lights with one in the front and even amount of lights on either side of the "V". I am the only observer that I know of. I am 14 years old and I go to a private school in Dallas that requires greater than average intelligence. I wasn't fatigued at all as I saw these formations and I've never had any mental hallucinations or anything before. I have experienced floaters (in eye doctor jargon) but I'm sure that the objects I saw were not them. The wind was going from north to south, so they weren't flares if the! y went f rom east to west. To conclude, I have never really strongly believed in aliens or UFO's or anything of the sort, but this seems very extra terrestrial to me.
