6 craft total. One mother ship.

This is a report based upon memory. Exact date is not assured. At approximately 2 AM while camping out on the banks of the Tuscarawas river, myself and three others were star gazing and talking about fishing, falling stars, looking for different constellations trying to identify some.

Obviously as we talked we had casual glances away from the sky but at one point one of the guys pointed to a “really bright” star that wasn't there earlier.

We were discussing whether or not that was the case and that we probably just didn't notice it before when all of a sudden and as we were all looking at it, it looked like 6 “stars” came “from” this bright star and made a evenly spaced pattern or formation around it.

NOW we were all focused on this what ever it was.

The 6 “stars” nor the brighter center star moved for awhile as we watched then, the 6 “stars” sped off at very high speed in different directions as the larger “star” remained. High speed in this case means from standing stop to ZIP across the entire sky in a split second or actually less and GONE.

Now we are suggesting and discussing that these aren't “stars”. LOL The larger … craft disappeared. Like the lights were just shut off.

Some time later, the larger craft “came back” as we could see the bright light again and at the same location.

It sat there for awhile by itself then all of a sudden all of the other 6 craft at very high speed, reformed around the brighter craft, stayed at those positions for a brief period of time then, all at the same time, at very high speed became one with the larger craft.

The larger craft then stayed for a short period of time, maybe about 20 minutes, then it just disappeared like the lights were shut off.

The lights of the smaller craft were not as bright as the larger craft.

The lights of any of them flickered.

The coloration of the lights were the same which was what I will call typical star light white.

This was my first UFO sighting and experience.
