Shape: Diamond
Duration:3 minutes
diamond pattern of round lights passing silently overhead

I went outside to tend our dogs. While out a light came across the horizon. It caught my attention since it was brighter than an airplane. I actually glanced up at it then did a double take when I realized it wasn't a plane. It wasn't high enough to have been planes in formation. It was 4 round lights in a diamond pattern. It was completely silent, no contrail. It passed from North to South. We have a NASCAR event here this week. I considered it being a blimp coming to cover the race but they're normally very loud.
