Duration:Aprox. 2 minutes
Four red lights dancing around heading due west.

Around 3:45 in the morning. a sunday. I was about to turn around and go to my bed when I saw a blurbed little red light pop on near Jupiter. It was originally heading south, but it turned west from its course by large swoop-like turns, like a ball on a string. After the first light had caught my attention, three more came out of the east, at a steady speed in a loose echeleon formation. Two were flying straight and rigid, while the one farthest south was swerving around like a bouncy ball. While they were as close to being directly above me as they ever came to be, an incredibly bright meteor, short, extremely fast. It did NOT effect the craft in formation.

About fifteen minutes afterwards, I saw a another strange looking meteor, the reason I say it looked strange is because it looked extremely low, like a trace bullet.

The red lights had no particular shape, just little red blurbs of light.

I am known to be a mostly honest person. With only one witness, that being me, this probably doesn't count all that much. But I knew what I saw and it scared me plenty.

I also saw the first one throght binoculars, so I knew I wasn't seeing things, and I wasn't dreaming either.
