Sky was completely clear. Driving back from the shops I spotted two tiny white discs moving across the sky. The discs would have been obscured completely if I held a ten-cent coin up at arm’s length in front of them.
Parked my car, ran to my back yard and quickly located them again, but now could see a third disc, making a triangular formation. I called my wife, who came and saw the same moving discs, staying in formation as they travelled across the sky in a slow, west to east direction.
After about 15 minutes, the dots were nearing the horizon and started fading from view. A fourth disc, very faint, became visible for a few minutes as if it were trailing the others.
We were unable to capture video or photos – the glare from the morning sky against the tiny dots was too strong unfortunately.
