Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Strobe-Like objects flying with no sound.

Looking toward the Eastern sky at approx 8:20 PM, My wife, myself and my son watched 8 blinking objects fly from west to east at a fairly high rate of speed without any sound whatsoever. Given the speed, at any altitude we should have been able to hear noise from either turbine or normally aspirated engines. NO SOUND! Because the moon was full and so bright, We would have been able to see a shape had the lights been one object. It is obvious that the lights were separate objects.

I am a pilot, (single engine, fixed wing) I know what airplanes and helicopters look like in the sky. These were neither.

After the first group of half a dozen lights went by, shortly after, two similar lights followed as if following the objects.
