South Florida: 10-15 random lights appeared as stars moving at slow to very fast speeds at high altitudes

While walking my dogs at about 7:30pm, I looked up in the sky to notice a bunch of bright “stars.” Normally I don't see as many, due to the amount of lights on the ground in south Florida. (lights usually reflect on the atmosphere making it more difficult to see stars.)

When I stopped to see the “stars,” I noticed there were about 10-15 that were actually moving at different speeds and sometimes slowing and speeding up. There was a random group, no formation like you would expect for planes or other aircraft. I felt spooked after watching for about 5 minutes, so I ran in to get my fiancé to take a look so I didn’t think I was seeing things. She witnessed the same strange siting, and also got spooked and ran in the house.

The lights seemed at a very high altitude and appeared to look like stars. As the view became blocked, I moved between trees to notice the lights moving at a much faster speed toward the western horizon. Still maintaining a random formation. There’s no way they could be aircraft of any type to be that many and to move at that rate of slow speed to high speed and cover that much distance in about a minute or less. There were no light trails of any sort. Just a formation of random “star” looking lights moving very strangely. There was no ability to determine a shape of objects due to the distance and altitude they seemed to be at.

I’ve watch a lot of aircraft in the past, in the night skies, and this was definitely much different. I even noticed actual aircraft in the skies during and after the siting and nothing moved like these 10-15 lights I witnessed. It would have been difficult for anyone to notice unless you were looking up at stars and noticed the moving lights, they easily blended in with the night sky. Very strange but interesting experience.
