Shape: Circle
Duration:4 seconds
Two white circles covering 65 degrees in 4 seconds

I took my dog out for one last job between 12:10 and 12:20am on Sunday May 12th (early mothers day). I was out there for less than a minute when I thought I saw a shooting star in my peripheral vision almost directly above me. Upon focusing on it I saw two white circles, not like bright directional shining lights normally seen on a plane but just white circles. I initially thought it could be one object total but it could be two separate in the same path of travel as the white circles were separated. The white circles were about the same size around as a #2 pencil held out at arms length and they were spaced out to fit about two of those #2 pencil diameters in between them. It was moving very fast from East to West. I saw it from about 90 degrees to about 25 degrees above the horizon. I could tell it was pretty high up because the sky was clear straight up and all the way to the east but to the west there was some very thin cloud cover that I was able to sti! ll see bright stars through and I could see the white circles slightly dim as it went behind one narrow cloud then get brighter after it passed over it into the clear for a bit and then went behind more cloud cover and got smaller the further away it was and dimmed and then it was gone. This all happened very fast. I estimate the total time from it first catching my eye till it went out of sight was 4 seconds. I know for a fact it was not a plane or a satellite. Way too incredibly fast to be either. The object made no noise. It was purely silent. I also pulled up airplane radar flight records online between 12:10 and 12:20 and there was no planes flying over the city in this timeframe. I talked to an individual at a local airport about it and they stated that it could be a secret military aircraft as they fly those in the middle of the night so they aren't easily seen. Whether this is true or not I have no idea. It suppose it could be as it was headed in the direction of a ! nearby air force base.
