Location: Philadelphia, PA
Shape: Formation
Duration: 1-2 min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I saw the same thing that others in different locations saw on the night of the eclipse. It has been a few weeks since I saw it, so I can only give an approximate time frame of from 8:00 to 8:30pm.

At first I thought it was a flock of birds flying under the moon in v-formation, but then I noticed that the lines of the v did not waver at all. They stayed completely straight, moving at a uniform speed, which suggests to me that it was part of the same craft. As if two sides of a triangle were lined with lights. From where I stood (at 19th and Spring Garden Sts.) it appeared to be moving from north to south.

I noticed that there was absolutely no sound coming from it. It was a bit cloudy that night over Philly, so I can't verify color. In fact, I couldn't discern any mass to it at all. It looked like just a v-shaped line of lights moving in unison.
