Location: West Valley, UT
Shape: Circle
Around 20 bright circular objects changing different directions and at variable velocities.

It was quite dark outside as I walked out of my house in Utah at 6:15 this morning. The moon was nearly, directly overhead and the air was very clear and crisp.

I looked up and noticed several "stars" moving at not only different speeds, but they were moving in different directions. I started to count the objects and decided to stop after about 10. Some would move faster than others, some would stop and start moving in another direction. These circular objects were very bright, and none of them gave off a blinking pattern that might be confused with an airplane. The circular shapes were very different than the actual stars observed in the night sky, in that they were slightly larger,and moving at variable speeds and directions.
