Shape: Light
Duration: 20 min
We were picnicking on a pier over the beach as the tide was high and the water engulfed the entire beach. We had layed down on the blanket and stargazing when I spotted a shooting star. This prompted curiosity and wonder therefore we both searched for possibly more shooting stars. The shooting star that I saw had tail and was falling. The following sightings were completely different.

Four different lights were seen. They had no tails like the shooting star. The direction of travel was more across the sky rahter than "falling". They were very high in the sky. They looked like moving stars but the speed was very fast.

The first one was about twice as high as a normal jet but traveled across the sky about 10 times faster. It was traveling South by South-East. After crossing about 3/4 across the sky, it shot straight up into space.

The second one was about 5 minutes later traveling in the same direction as the first but a little more eastward. It was about twice as high as the first. This one's trajectory was not straight like the first. It wavered back and forth as it traveled like an oscillation wave.

The third was even higher than the second one. It too wavered. The direction was not southward but due east. This one traveled across the sky briefly and then shot out into space.

The fourth one was as high as the third and traveled in the same direction but continued straight and further across the sky before shooting onto space.

All four events occured within a time span of 20 minutes.
