Flotilla over Austin disguised as Orion.

I am trying to get other people on FB or otherwise to say they if saw it... I posted to FB 30 seconds after my witness, trying to get another witness.

I was just casually outside having a smoke. I am an artist, and generally interested in the clouds, the stars, what the sky looks like. I wasn't paying any special attention.

I saw the constelletion Orion, and thought, "that's odd; I don't think this rises for hours?" The sun was up, so not that visable.

It started moving north across the sky way way way too fast to be stars.

I was in Austin corner of 51/Airport this formation headed north. They looked like evening stars, except evening stars don't move even close to that fast.

I sometimes have vision problems, so I kept taking my glasses on off, on off, on off. NO I saw the same thing either way.

Last I checked, Orion doesn't change ten degrees in 30 seconds.
