Shape: Triangle
Duration:45 minutes
Thousands of strange objects streaking across the night sky

We observed objects comming from the north and moving southward and sometimes changing to a path of south west. They appeared to be in groups of 20-30. They started comming out of the north in a horizontal line to somewhat of a v shape and looked like groups of moving stars. We saw several passenger jet move across the sky while we were watching the objects and judging from the speed of a jet these objects were going 8-10 times faster than the jets. I got out my binoculars and looked at them as they came over and they had a bird like or plane like shape. In the binoculars they looked slightly illuminated or white. These groups came one after another for at least 45 minutes that we watched. I have lived here for 50 years and I have never seen anything like this in the sky. I dont believe these were birds on migration because there were too many of them and there was no sound. Also as I was watching one group approach one of the objects fell from the formation and had the appearance of a meteorite except it fell much slower.If anyone can tell me what this was please let me know.

((NUFORC Note: We believe that this is a serious report, but we don't understand how just one person can be witness to this alleged event, and yet there are no other reports. There is one other similar report from Davis, CA, for this date, but we cannot be certain that PD))
