Shape: Formation
Duration:~25 minutes
Viewed a star-like object higher than a plane would fly, flanked by 6 less-bright 'stars' of light traveling around it.

i was blowing bubbles with my son around 7:45 pm tonight and looked up and saw a light that appeared too high to be an airplane. i thought perhaps it was a planet as it was glowing brightly. I could tell it was moving, but quite slowly and could make out six less bright lights glowing around it.

They were traveling southeast all in tandem, though the six lesser lights seemed to move slightly as well, but all seemed to be traveling around the main star.

I called my partner to see it and he confirmed and saw it too. i cannot say for certain it was a ufo, but it certainly was unlike anything I've ever seen in the sky.
