Posted: 8/16/2002
Location: Verl, Paderborn, Kaunitz (Germany),
Shape: Formation
Duration: 10 Minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Four Satellites ( Looked like Satellites) moving equally spaced out, in space.

In the year late 1999 early 2000 in Germany outside my home( I am from New Zealand ) I was waiting to be picked up to go to a party, Its was realy dark and I was looking up at all the stars, since It was so dark they were very bright.

I first noticed one satellite and then a second in formation, the third and fourth came into view which freaked me out a bit, I didnt think it was possible to have four satellites moving around together so perfectly...

When my friends arrived I pointed them ( the lights ) out to them which they followed with me untill they went out of view. ( Plus we had to go. ) I don't know what this could have been, I would say these were more in a square shape than rectangle, but each of them were very clearly spaced apart and moving in the same direction an equal distance apart ( the two sets, front 2 and back 2. )slowly, the four lights did not hide the stars in between or behind them.

It was in Verl near Kaunitz, dates and times I would have to ask my friends again or work out when I last lived there.

I rubbed my eyes and looked away a few times thinking I was seeing double or had something in my eye which caused the effect.

I would love to know if anyone else can answer this one. Is this a military satellite formation ?? GPS ? earth mapping system ?? I have only ever seen one satellight moving accross the sky before in Germany, seen heaps in NZ too.

The color of the lights were the same as the stars, whitish with blue tints glimmering around the edges.

small but clearly visable.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witness may describe the N.O.S.S. satellites, thought to be launched by the U. S. Navy. However, those satellites are thought to be launched in triplets, not in quads. Possibly, the NOSS satellites were flying over at the same time another satellite was in the area. We will ask the witness to research the precise date, which will help us compare it with other reports. We have assigned an arbitrary date here. PD))
