about five moving "stars", not a meteor shower no shooting stars, to slow, airplanes apeared afterward.

Last Sunday, it was pretty nice weather outside so I decided to go out on the porch. We live in a house with a lot of trees around it so I had to position myself just right to see the stars. I had been looking up for about 30 seconds and then I saw something that caught my attention. It appeared to be a star slowly moving across the sky. I could tell it wasn't an airplane and it was moving to slow to be a shooting star.

I blew it off for a few minutes thinking my mind was playing tricks on me until I saw another one. After I watched this one slowly drift across the sky, I raced inside to get my sister to come see this. She walked with me outside and we looked up at the sky. I explained to her what I saw and she wanted to go back in. I told her just stay a few more minutes. Sure enough about a minute and 30 seconds later, we saw another one! We watched as i behaved just as the other two and then it disappeared.

As we sat there a few more minutes we watched a few more pass over us. We finally grew tired of watching and went into the house. About 5-10 minutes later we went back out side. We began watching the sky again and saw a number of airplanes now circling above. We saw no more "UFOs" after that so we went back inside.
