Multiple sightings of fast moving points of light with changing motion, no identifiable shape, sudden appearances and disappearances.

Multiple sightings of unidentified objects have occurred in the past few weeks over Fort Wayne, Indiana. Sightings have been made by myself and 5 other people. I have experience in astronomy, astrology, and physics, as do two other witnesses. REPORT: On clear nights the unknown objects have been seen flying across the sky as (apparently) tiny points of light--NOT BLINKING, with a constant glow--, about the size/brightness of an average star (from our perspective). At first we assumed they were planes or possibly satellites, but for how small they were--seeing as they were at extremely high altitudes--they were moving far too fast. The objects moved at a seemingly constant velocity, but their independent trajectories are not constant. We have seen them travel in straight paths, in exaggerated arcs, and even move back in forth in a kind of weaving motion. What is peculiar is that the objects do not appear off the horizon, they simply appear at random points in the sky, sometimes along with barely noticeable flashes of light. Some are stationary and then begin to move very suddenly with no detectable acceleration. Furthermore, the objects do not necessarily fly toward the horizon as they move away from us. Instead they either fade away or simply blip out of sight. We assume that this means they are not following the curve of the earth, but moving on some kind of tangent. One object was the most interesting. It was much lower in the atmosphere then the others, appearing very large and bright, but with no obvious shape. It was just a point of light. It moved very quickly across the sky, and disappeared in a very sudden and almost undetectable flash of light. It was nowhere near the horizon at the time of its disappearance. The color of light coming from the larger object seemed to be a yellow shade, the wavelength being around 580nm. The most recent sighting was witnessed by myself alone at approximately 4:15 am, Wednesday, July 15 2009. There was a small flash and then a poi! nt of li ght like others before. This time, though,as the object moved directly over my position, the amplitude of the light it emitted greatly increased until it was very very bright. It dimmed again, then brightened for a shorter amount of time, before quickly speeding up and simply disappearing at about 75 degrees off the horizon. ** I realize this report is not very well organized, but it is in all aspects completely serious. I would very sincerely appreciate if someone were to look into this case.
