Location: Island Læsø (Laesoe)(Denmark),
Shape: Diamond
Duration:4-5 minutes
3 diamond-shaped objects in late daylight - moving in strotosphere

The Island is between Denmark and Sweden.

Daylight-observation (30 min. before sunset): 19:17: nr. 1 object was first mistaken as unusual "bright evening-star" in south, but it moved closer and appearing more as double-pyramide/ or a diamond. Only the top 1/3 part reflected sunlight/ was strong shining. (normally i would expect the bottom part to reflect sunlight at that time of day before sunset).

The lower 2/3 of the object was not shining, not reflecting sunlight.

nr. 2 object (same shape) appeared short after, right and higher of nr. 1 (maybe because it was closer to the observer?).

the objects was moving in a speed, ca. comparable to airplanes in 10 km altitude (800 km/h or more?).

nr. 1 turned northeast, while nr. 2 continued straight north and then disappeared high above a cumulus-cloud. therefor they must have been above troposphere: in the stratosphere or higher (?more efficient flight conditions?).

the observer was waiting for the local bus, and the bus driver witnessed the object nr. 1 (NE-moving), after nr. 2 just disappeared above the cloud.

After busdeparture the observer detected nr. 3 object coming from same direction (south). Because of departing from the site, the visual contact was lost.

There was no engine-sound / no con-trails, unlike normal air-traffic in the area.

we have no pictures! (50 m east from here is the biggest nuclear facility of north-europe, Ringhals).
