Duration: 4 hours
mutiple satellites moving erratically back and forth acrosss the sky

I was at a campout music festival high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in July of 2008, it was the middle of the night and the skies were clear and many stars were visible. My brother and I were lying on our backs watching the stars and we noticed what appeared to be a satellite moving across the sky, but then the object stopped moving in a straight line and turned in an almost 180 degree turn. It turned and changed its course many times. We noticed that there was not just one, but at least a dozen of these small lights high in the sky moving about randomly. We were not the only people to see them; there were probably dozens of people who saw these crafts in the sky. Whatever they were they were not conventional satellites and they appeared to be beyond the Earth’s atmosphere (about the same range as a standard satellite). I would like to point out that we were at an altitude of about 10,000 feet, and I have a feeling these things could be witnessed on any given night.
