Duration:5-10 min
Approx. 6-8 jets in sky. @ bright shining objects like small stars standing still. As one jet moved toward them, one moved away at a much greater speed and both disapeared.

My 15 year old son and myself were at a local shopping center around 6:00 pm on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 1999.It was still daylight. WE had noticed and mentioned that there was a lot of jets in the sky, All in the East sky near the horizon. Approx. 6-8. When we got out of our vehicle in the parking lot of the store, we noticed what looked to be two small yet very bright stars, If you were looking at the sky as a painting you could say that they were about 2" apart. I hope that this is a reasonable discription. I know that it was many miles apart in reality. The jets were leaving a short trail behind them and seem to be moving very fast. They were very high in the sky and seemed to be about the same heighth in the sky as the two still objects. As one of the jets got closer to the first object, the one on the left just disapeared and the one on the right moved to my left and away from the jet at a much greater speed than the jet ( many times faster )
