Location: Sarasota, FL
Shape: Formation
Duration:2 minutes
Formation of 4 what looked like stars moving across night sky from north to south.

26 Aug., 2014, about 3 AM EST, it was exeptionally clear out. I was star gazing when a triangular formation of stars caught my eye. I noticed they were moving from north to south and were moving in the triangular formation of 4 like a flock of geese.

This formation covered a large area and were definately very high in the atmosphere or higher. They were lit like stars and were moving at a high rate of speed. They did not deviate out of their formation. The whole time I witnessed this was a total of 2 minutes max.

I've seen the space station pass over head several times and the speed at which it passed through from one horizon to the other was about the same speed.

I am a commercial airline pilot and these were not your typical airliners or aircraft as they have strobes and nav lights lit.

I can't emphasize enough the amount of area this formation was but it was rather large and it was very high up.
