During my Astronomy session, we were told to look towards Polaris. We did this and about 30 seconds later, noticed an object moving south. We thought it was a plane and then it stopped. It sat there for about 2 or 3 seconds then moved back to the north. It moved north for about 5 seconds and then changed direction again to the south. It did this for another 5 to 7 seconds. Then it moved rapidly in an easterly direction and disappeared. The object was yellow almost a gold color About 4 minutes later, I saw a circle of 6 to 8 lights (gold dots) moving at a very fast pace to the south. These lights were very small. I followed it in a southerly direction and then they moved out of formation and looked like they were going to dive and then they were lost in the clouds. This last sight lasted about 10 seconds.
