Reported: 4/20/2000 21:17
Posted: 4/26/2000
Location: Clearfield, UT
Shape: Formation
Duration: 3 to 5 min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Formation of small lights flying from South to North -- first two groups of 7 followed by 3, another of 14 and last of 7. Each group took approx. 3 sec. flying at 80 to 90 degrees across the sky.

Watching from a parking lot, we observed small lights in a semi-circle which we first thought were geese. Of course, it was too dark for geese and this formation moved across the sky in about 3 seconds. We continued on to my car and another group of 7 appeared in the sky about 15 sec. later. We stopped this time wondering if it was the same group having returned but another appeared after the same 15 second interval with 3 which invalidated that premise. My friend commented that the skies were alive tonite as we turned back to the South and awaited another group. Much to our surprise, a group of 14 flew over. These were not in a perfect semi-circle formation and were more scattered. By this time we had ruled out a search light and airplanes which were flying slowly by comparison in the area. After another group of seven which flew directly overhead, the show was over. There were not sounds whatsoever, and it was smooth sailing from one end of the sky to the next. Very spectacular -- incredible!!!
