NUFORC UFO Sighting 3099

Occurred: 1996-07-04 23:30 Local
Reported: 1998-02-06 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 30sec

Location: Traverse City, MI, USA

Shape: Other

I saw approx. 20 small pin points of light in a triangular formation. (almost like a group of birds flying south) The points of light resembled satellites as seen in the night sky, but the formation was strange. After about 30 second, the lights faded away.

I was on the beach late on July 4th (the year Independance Day came out - everyone laughed when they heard my story) I love to look at the stars, and I had been looking at the sky for a few minuits when I saw a group of lights. They were all tiny pinpricks of light, like a satellite, but moving together in a V-shape, like birds. They all followed their own individual paths, but didn't break the V formation. The V shape also moved across the sky at a constant velocity. I am an astronomy and physics major, and I can't think of anything that can explain what I saw.
