Shape: Formation
Duration: 45 seconds
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects
One bright one, one faint one traveling together, three more appear from bright one, circle and fly dfferent directions.

About 9:15 p.m. I was out in my backyard watering the plants, I looked to the sky as I always observe the skys above.

I noticed what I thought was a sattelite moving a little to fast in the southeastern sky. Then I noticed it had a smaller, more faint twin traveling just behind it. They were both kind of zig-zagging back and forth as they moved forward.

Then they both stopped in mid-flight and three more of them seemed to come out of the larger one. There was four of the smaller ones flying a circle around the larger more-bright one.

They all stopped after about 5-6 seconds and parted separate ways. Two of them went west, one went north and the bright one and a small one continued south until out of sight.

There were no flashing lights or any color to them at all. And all were way higher than most commercial air liners usually fly. It was a partly cloudy sky also and I witnessed all of this during a break in the clouds.
