Duration:2 min
6 black objects, no sound, no lights, high rate of speed, flying in formation at 3:00 am

It was a while ago, approximately April or July 2002. I believe it was a Saturday night. I was at my job site at 3:00 in the morning taking pictures with my telescope. When out of the southern sky, I observed 5 / 6 black objects flying directly overhead and then disappearing into the northern sky. Two of the objects were flying erratically: moving side to side. They had no lights and there was no sound. They were flying in a formation of some sort. Each object had what appeared be bent wings. I wondered if it could be birds even though I could not see any wing movement, but I’ve never recalled a time when birds flock together at night and flew in formation. They seem to be about 500 feet up. The sighting time length was approximately 90 seconds as I watched them fly over my head. Sorry, no pictures. Did anyone else see it?
