Four saucer shaped black and shiny UFOs flying in a straight line formation from south-east to north-west seen in Dublin.

Four saucer shaped black and shiny UFOs flying in a straight line formation from south-east to north-west have been observed for several minutes in the northern part of Dublin not far from the airport. They attracted my attention because of some pulsating effect as I was bird watching on this sunny and clear sky afternoon in my garden. I ran to grab binoculars (Nicon 10x/50mm) and et voila they were really well visible flying saucers to my total astonishment. Then I've concentrated on one as they were about to hide below the roof and sun glare. It had an asymmteric bulge rotating with about approx. 1-2 times a sec thus producing an oscillating effect as the material is pitch matte black but extremely shiny (like metallic) at certain angle to the sun. No portholes, no signs, no trail, no sound, speed was that of an aircrat roughly, but nothing like an aircraft I've ever seen! It flew ignoring the usual airport air traffic, but there happened to be no craft flying at the time I was watching them with the binoculars. Total calm, no track or exhaust visible. The propulsion system, steady majestic way of flying and perfect formation were astounding. I wish I had my camera loaded with film and tele lense attached, but there was no time for that. Very similar to the description from London close to that date I've seen on this site, but brown possibly because of the sunset. I only report it now because I've learned about this site from a TV programme on the Phoenix UFO. Note that I'm using an alias because of professional concerns, but the way I've seen these things was so superb!
