Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 min
Observed unexplained object(s) in the sky near Raleigh, NC

What began as an my observing an unbelievably bright "Venus" soon gave way to my thinking that the object was possibly a jetliner w/ landing lights traveling toward my location. I was driving at the time and could not discern movement until after observing for about ten minutes.

My route was on winding country roads, so as I constantly changed direction, the light stayed consistent. I began to suspect this wasn't a jetliner.

Oddly, as I drove I saw two jetliners on approach to RDU to the west of my location (about 30 miles away), and could see their flashing beacon lights. The object I was observing did not have flashing beacon lights. The object I had been observing seemed to be about the same altitude but farther west of the jetliners on approach, and the object shown much brighter than the jetliners.

I lost sight of the object as my view was blocked by trees. When the tree line ended to my surprise I saw three idenical objects in a razor sharp straight line appearing to head north beyond the RDU approach the jetliners had taken. Military? Satellite?
