Light formation streaks across Vermont skyI was out looking for meteors during the Lyrids Meteor shower last night at approximately 1:02 am. There were no clouds in any line of vision. I was on a dark spot on the University of Vermont Campus when suddenly a formation of lights streaked across the sky. Each individual object looked identical to a faded star and but there were four all together that moved in a somewhat V-Formation. 3 moved in a straight line while one moved to the back left of the leading object, creating the V-shape perception. The lights remained constant, created no sound nor trail, held a constant shape and the lights were spaced out similar to the stars in O'Ryan's belt. The cluster of objects came into my vision about 40 degrees west(relative to the horizon) of the big dipper. It then moved liked a shooting star but but was visible for about 4-5 seconds before it vanished in the southwest sky. I had never seen anything like this before and had been a total skeptic before. I would love to know if there were any other witnesses or someone who could explain to me what this might have been.
