East Edmonton, Alberta Formation Of Lights, Some Looping

Date: July 31, 2005
Time: 11:45 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 5
Shape of objects: Round points of light.

Full Description of event/sighting: I have been a little reluctant to report this as I made my first report ever, 2 weeks prior to this one, and I didn't want people to think that I was picking things out of the sky to see, but changed my mind as I think it's important to document. I have been sky watching nightly for 1 to 1.5 hours every night weather permitting for years, without seeing anything other than the normal satellites, occasional meteors, planes, etc. It was 11:45 when I was watching the sky to the east of Edmonton, didn't see anything exciting, and pulled my binoculars up to look through. I immediately caught sight of 5 brightly lit objects (white) traveling from east to west. They were in formation with 3 side by side and 2 above and slightly offset from each other. They stayed that way for only a second traveling at a great speed as it was hard to keep up using my binos. I thought it was a plane with its lights on, when the 2 objects above looped down and around the other 3 in a circular motion while maintaining its speed.

Then the other 3 moved in the same way around the other 2, and I lost sight of them as my building was in the way. The speed was greater than the military jets that occasionally fly over and the movement was unlike anything I have ever seen. I was so excited I tried to call my friend, but my phone died, so I jumped in my truck and drove over and woke her up to tell her. Which by the way she wasn't to impressed as she just went to bed. The whole sighting lasted maybe 5 seconds.

There are definitely some strange events happening in the skies over Edmonton.

Thank you to the person for the report.
