5 individual "stars", moving downwards or upwards, & changing angel of direction.

Malta (Sliema) _ 31st 31st August 2006 The 1st sighting happened around 9.30 at night.

I was with another person on a roof, when we both noticed a moving star.

It was exactly shaped, sized, bright and distant as a common star, but it slowly moved for around 30 seconds till it seemed to disappear in the distance. After a few minutes we both spotted another "moving star," it looked just like the previous and was observed for around the same amount of time. These sightings are two of five we observed that night, that occurred in a time-frame of around 30 minutes.

These moving stars may sound like shooting stars, though 4 of them did move from top to bottom as if falling, one of them moved up wards. Something I never encountered in a shooting star. And all 5 sightings were too long observed, and moved in a slow manner compared to a shooting star.

Also, while moving these objects seemed to slightly change direction. They moved in a straight matter yet slightly changed angel as they moved. One of the objects at one point, seemed to slightly move in a zigzag manner, just long enough for us to confirm it with each other, as it then disappeared in the distance.

I don’t think any of the authorized flying objects found in Malta, can explain our sightings. Nor can they be explained by a satellite to my knowledge.

I am currently, searching for an explanation.
