Location: Yorktown, VA
Shape: Circle
Duration:15 seconds
4 dimly lit circles going southeast, no sound, no blinking lights, clear night, duration about 15 secounds

Crisp, clear night.Four dimly lit circles came from the north heading southeast in a diamond formation. About 5 seconds into the sighting they changed positions into a line with three in a row and the trailing circle in an offset and then quickly back into the diamond formation.There is alot of air traffic in my area so iam used to all kinds of aircraft at all sorts of altitudes and you can hear them unless they happen to be flying at 30 to 40 thousand feet.These objects made no sound at all.The color and brightness can best be described as what you would see if light was seen through a brown paper bag,not very bright.If there were clouds that night what I saw could very easily be written off as a reflection from some source but not that night.Also I could not see anything solid between the circles as in a larger object.
