Location: Savannah (Wilmington Island), GA
Shape: Formation
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A V "formation" of five lights moved silently at a high rate of speed from East to West at 22:30 EST 5 Nov 07

While facing East Northeast observing the 17P Holmes Comet I caught movement to my left (generally North of the Comet) and immediately looked to see if it was a plane. What I spotted was what appeared to be either five individual lights traveling in a "V" formation from East to West or a single object with five lights. The lights were a dull red/amber color and as bright as an average star in the sky. The object(s) moved at a high rate of speed but made absolutely no sound as they moved across the sky. I immediately called to my wife to look at them, but they went behind some trees before she saw them. Just before the lights disappeared behind the trees the lights changed their relative position in relation to each other as if it were a single object that was beginning to bank and the lights were moving accordingly. Sky conditions were clear and there was no moon.
