|Strange formation of objects seen by 2 witnesses over the town of Hyvinkää, Finland.
I´m an 18-year old student from Finland. This is a report of an event me and my friend witnessed about a year ago. I cant remember the exact date but it was July, I believe. The reason of this delay is that I´ve just found your site and I´d like to give a report.
It was late in the evening, almost midnight. Me and my friend were kicking football on a nearby field when I noticed something strange in the southern horizon. I saw a formation of star- or satellite- like dots moving from south to southeast. I know that there are satellites moving in formations but there were far too many objects here, over ten. The formation of these objects was irregular, but they were moving with a visible speed like satellites. Time to time these objects vanished slowly and then came back into vision. When noticing the phenomenon I told my friend to take a look of the objects too. (His face was heading north while I was the goalkeeper with my face heading south) He saw the objects and said only:"Those are definitely UFO:s." Then we kept on kicking the ball and paid no longer attention to the phenomenon. However, this sighting has bothered me ever since. Do you have any idea, what this strange formation could have been. I can only tell that in July the nights here in Finland are quite light so this phenomenon could have possibly been something reflecting the light of the sun. Birds of course are out of the option. The sun had already set.

Whoops! Made a little error there. The year of the observation was really 2002 but I just can´t remember the exact date, sorry. The month was July, that´s the thing I remember.
