Duration: 40 minutes
Points of light moving erratically in the sky, sometimes at great speed.

On 11/5/20, about 8:15pm I stepped outside to let my dog out. When I looked up, I saw an unusual bright light in the southern sky. As I watched it, it suddenly changed direction and then moved erratically, both east and west. It was slightly red around the edge, but shape was not observable. I called for my wife to come see, and she was amazed to see it moving around in the sky, sometimes at great speed. She called her sister who lives close by. Within 10 minutes, her sister sent a text to say that she and her husband had seen three of these lights in the sky. I went back out and observed a second light moving in precise unison with the first one. They were much more overhead and the original one seemed much brighter than the second one.

They continued to move around in the sky without any apparent direction for thirty minutes before I lost sight of them.

This is my second time in the last 2 weeks of spotting this phenomena. The first episode was very similar, but only a single light was observed, and I was the only witness.
