Shape: Circle
Duration: 5 minutes
There was a central shiny object with at least 3 light blue objects around it all moving at the same speed

While sitting out on my deck with my 23 year old daughter I happened to glance into the clear blue sky and noticed a bright, shiny object. A contact wearer I rubbed my eyes to ensure I wansn't seeing things. After which to my surprise I noted 2 light blue objects to each side of the shiny object.

I pointed the objects out to my daughter. It took a few mintes for her to see them, they were high in the sky, then she noticed them.

I ran into the house to get binoculars. She said she then saw another light blue object. She said they formed 2 shapes, a diamond then what she called a peace sign.

As I came back outside they were passing into the trees and I never did see them with the binoculars. We watched for a while hoping to see them again but to no avail. They came from the WSW and slowly turned towards the south. I would be interested to hear if anyone else had a similar sighting on this day.
