Location: Bristol, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
Saw 7 dim lights flying over Bristol, TN, very high up. Flew in formation, except the center light which occasionally left and returned.

Saw 7 lights over Bristol, TN. The lights were moving in a formation quickly considering their relative distance. We could not see all of the lights at all times except for the one in the center of the formation which was the brightest and would occasionally leave the formation and then return. The other 6 would be seen moving and flashing. They were not very bright but due to their speed of movement appeared to be relatively close to the atmosphere. This was viewed by myself and one other for an hour even getting out riflescopes to view them at points. We eventually shrugged it off as just a satellite or stars. But satellites don’t fly that close together and they definitely don’t fly in formation.
