Shape: Light
Duration: 5 seconds
On the night of May, 16th. 2001, I was in the yard of my residence observing satellites. I had a schedule at hand and a good pair of binoculars. At 01:10 GMT, what appeared to be a satellite showed up in the southwest, moving to the northeast.

Unbelievably, it instantly made a 90 degree turn to the northwest. After making that instant change in direction,it began to slow down to a stop! Then I saw another,coming from the southeast on a course to join the first craft. As #2 was approaching #1, #3 showed up in the far northwest. It was not as bright as the other two and appeared smaller, but was very fast.I followed it for about 5 seconds and when I looked for #1 and #2, they both had disappeared. These craft were surely not satellites.
