Sightiings of 5 stationary objects, about 30 degrees obove horizon at Hollywood Beach, Florida, on a warm sunny afternoon.

We were on the beach and had watched a plane take off over the water and it crossed in front of the moon. Then my wife saw a light which looked like a bright star about 9oclock(using moon as center) 10 degrees from the moon. This was a clear day with bright sun. then at 5 oclock, using first object as center, about 5 degrees from the first object,another appeared. After about 10 minutes 3 less visible (about 1/4 as bright) objects appeared, in a straight line (using second object as center), at 6,5,4 oclock at about 2 degrees below the lower objet and lined upward at about a 45 degree angle to the horizon. Because these were less visible the two witnesses could not see them.

All three of us saw the first 2 objects . All objects seem to be stationary. With the bright sun and clear skys I feel that what we saw was indeed 5 objects that were stationary and the sun was hitting them at an angle to reflect light towards earth.
