My two friends and I saw 3 white dots fade in and out of visibility that moved at fast speed in very close proximity to each other.

On Saturday, May 2, 2020 between 5 and 5:15PM in Lewiston, ME I saw 3 white dots moving around in the sky, right below a very visible moon. It was 60 degrees and sunny out but the moon was visible and I just happened to be admiring it when I saw the 3 dots. I watched them for about 10 seconds before calling my house mates, who were also outside, to see what I was seeing.

The 3 white dots were moving in close proximity to each other, horizontally and diagonally. They didn’t cross each other’s paths but moved closer and farther away from each other intermittently. Three of these UFOs were visible simultaneously at first, then we only saw 2 at a time for the remainder of the encounter. They faded in and out of visibility, sometimes with none of them visible at all for brief moments. They reappeared in different positions in the sky compared to when they went out of focus. We got a little freaked out because their position in the sky descended as time went on.

We watched this for about five minutes. The whole time, there was a very long, patchy cloud visible under the moon in an otherwise blue sky. Once this cloud disappeared, so did the multiple, moving white dots. We continued looking at the sky for more activity but didn’t witness anything else after the cloud dissipated. We didn’t collect any video footage even though we discussed trying but, none of us wanted to reach for our phones on the table a few yards away and miss anything. We also doubted if we could capture it. It’s all we’ve been able to talk about and everyone we’ve shared it with has told us it was just “Starlink.” No! No it wasn’t!
