DRIVING TO WORK I SAW 3 OBJECTS APPEAR OVER THE HORIZON IN A FORMATION THAT WAS ONE IN FRONT AND THE NEXT 2 JUST BEHIND AND BELOW THE ONE AHEAD OF ITTHE HAD TAILS THAT LOOKED MORE LIKE SPARKS THAN A FLAME THE LEAD ONE SUDDENLY ACCELERATED AND THE OTHER TWO DID THE SAME SOON AFTER IT WAS MOSTLY A WHITE LIGHT WITH THE TAIL IT WAS DARK AND I COULDNT MAKE OUT ANY SHAPE OF THE OBJECT. THIS WAS DURING THE METEOR SHOWER THAT TOOK PLACE IN I THINK NOVEMBER BUT THESE DIDNT LOOK LIKE METEORS.THEY WERE MOVING TO SYNCHRONISTIC . I DRIVE A TRUCK FOR A LIVING AND HAVE SEEN PLENTY OF METEOR SHOWERS AND HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE

((NUFORC Note: We presume that the witness is describing the event that occurred over the eastern U. S. on 16NO99. This is the type of report that makes us somewhat uncomfortable with the notion that the event was due to meteors. Meteors do not accelerate.
