Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail
((name deleted))(friend), my two children and I went to a park to watch the meteor shower. We noticed a cluster of lights in the sky that looked abnormal. During a period of approximately two hours we watched this "cluster" move around in the sky.

A group of at least six lights caught our attention because of their spacing. They were very close together but initially appeared to be a star constellation. After close observation we noticed that the lights were moving. They would move one direction than another direction. Their movement was very erratic at certain times. They appeared to be traveling in unison. Occasionally other lights would shoot out from the area of the lights. This light would streak across the sky very faintly similar to the meteors but much fainter. It was hard to distinguish if the six lights were one object or six different objects. Occasionally the six lights would move so fast it would leave a streak or tail. The object's shape was like a kite with a tail plus one extra light in the middle that was brighter than the others.
