Shape: Light
Duration:12 minutes
Flickering white lights due west in a curved, symmetrical pattern, moving downward to the south.

Looking from my bedroom window to the west, I saw 6 sparkling lights in the sky. At first I thought that they were possibly airplanes, satellites, or twinkling stars, but they were bright and close enough together not to be planes. They were slowly moving downward in a southern direction. Two of them slowly faded away while holding their position, while the remaining four kept moving in a southern direction until I couldn't see them anymore. I've never seen sparkling lights in the morning sky moving in such a curved, symmetrical pattern. Interesting to watch, but odd.
