Location: Rugby (UK/England),
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 20 secs
Multiple triangular lights moving in V formation.

The following was witnessed by 2 adults and a 9 yr old ,at home , shooting-star watching during the Perseids meteor shower on a completely clear and calm night at approx 11 - 11:15 pm on 12th August 2002.

We observed 8 or 9 very well defined geometrical Triangular shapes ,initially moving in V formation. The whole shapes were lit up , though appeared to be either reflected or dimly glowing white rather than emiting a bright light.The shapes glided silently across the sky , looking almost unreal and 2-dimensional ,they were immediately overhead and travelling East to West at a steady velocity.We watched them for approx. 20 seconds before , as they were going out of view , the V formation split apart into 2 groups and then rapidly disappeared out of sight.

One of the observers saw an orange glow around the edges of the shapes.
