Shooting star flies by -- 1/2 hour later we have what appears to be 8 search aircraft looking in the area.

While walking with my son during trick or treat, I saw wat appeared to be a shooting star. Nothing wrong with this, but about 1/2 hour later I see a formation of what appears to be 8 lights in the air spaced out independent of each other similar to a playing card 8 of diamonds. These moved independent of each other. It appeared to be a search team of some sort. I was just supprised to see this type of activity after a shooting star. The Cleveland airport is about 20 miles east of the area we were in and a small county airport for small private planes about 4 miles away. So I am familiar with normal air traffic in the area. I have never seen anything like this in the past.
