Duration:30 seconds
Formation changing, oval mass of white dots, rapidly moving across the night sky.

My friend and I were sitting in the backyard of my home, having a conversation while gazing at the stars. Suddenly a loosely oval-shaped mass, consisting of 30 to 40 glowing white dots, appear in the Northwest sky, moving at rapid speed. It was moving faster than a plane or birds could have flown. I said to my friend, “what is that?” and she observed the same thing I did. The mass kept undulating and moving rapidly across the sky. Suddenly it changed shape into a straight-line formation, continuing due east. The line formation lasted a few seconds and then, just as suddenly, it returned to the loosely oval-shaped mass. Thirty seconds later, the mass disappeared as suddenly as it had appeared.

Neither one of us had been drinking or was intoxicated in any way or form, as both of us rarely drink. We are full-time students in the local community college, both with GPAs above 3.8. My friend is 31 years old and I am 57. I am the mother of two grown children. We have never experienced anything like this before. It was fascinating and beautiful.
