|Shape becomes 2 lights flying in an erratic pathway while doing semi circles.
It was a clear night all the stars were visible. The area was near 2 university campuses. All I saw were the lights, my girlfriend saw a shape before it became two lights.
I saw the 2 strobes of white light move in an erratic pathway high in the sky. The 2 lights looked similar to stars and did not move in a straight line. Going generally from east to west they moved in bursts of high speed. There were erratic directional changes in their path. While covering this path the two objects also moved in relation to eachother. They repeated a path of semi circles. The lights started out larger and brighter at the start of their path, by the end they were too far in the distance to see. It was still high above the horizon as it faded away. By the end of it's path it was not covering as much area, pretty much still as it dissapeared. It's flight was similar to that of an airplane covering the whole sky. But it flew in bursts of much higher speeds and erratic angles.
What my girlfriend saw was more vivid. I had her explain in detail to me what she saw but she would not be interested in admitting her account to anyone else. Over my shoulder she saw a sillouhette directly above her. She described this as what she thought was a bat or "two blobs". She asked me "what is that?" and by the time she had me looking it became the two lights and was in the oposite direction she originally had me look .
We are both in our early 20's and skeptical. I know this was not a conventional aircraft or a shooting star due to the velocity, erratic path, and pattern or formation.
