Reported: 2000-08-12 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 7 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Stockport (UK/England), , United Kingdom

Shape: Cigar

observed 2 dull brown cigar shaped objects travelling very fast from east to west in a staggered parallel formation

I was watching the perseid meteor shower from my back garden, it had been a reasonable display and i was getting cold so i decided to turn in. As i stood up 2 objects appeared in the sky to the east. They were dull brown in colour and cigar shaped, very close to each other in a slightly staggered parallel formation. They were moving very fast across the sky from the east to the west and dissapeared over the western horizon. The entire duration was about 7 seconds. I really don't think they were meteors. I observe meteors as a hobby, i check out all the annual showers and was in Tenerife in Nov 98 for the Leonid fireball show and 99 for the fainter meteor storm so i have seen a lot. These 2 objects didn't look like any meteors i have ever seen. Very puzzled by this 1.....
