Posted: 12/23/2002
Location: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, HI
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 15 min
Characteristics: The object changed color
Three objects originating from the same area moved rapidly in separate directions.

As I was looking at the sky directly above me an object appeared high in the sky. The first object first brightened then dimmed (reddish color) then disappeared, this occured over 4 cycles and then remained a constant light. While it travelled in a direct line at the 2 o'clock position (became white) moving rapidly, much faster than a satellite. It then began to make an s-shape and headed down towards the tree line where we could no longer track it. The second object was a faint white light, and appeared in the same location a minute or two later but followed a straight path down in the 6 o'clock position. The third object was also a faint white light, that appeared again within a minute of losing sight of the last one, in the same position right above us this object went in a straight 5 o'clock path until we could no longer track it. All three travelled at about the same speed and did not leave a trail. The time was shortly past twilight, clear skies, dark night at Namakani Paio Camp Ground at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
