Event date: 9/29/16 20:45-21:30
my friends and i were at a place we have previously seen ufos at, catching up, when we noticed at an approximate heading of 190 a craft that was first assumed to be a plane. first photograph shows first object approximately 1° below horizon. craft is later seen 4-5° above horizon with an estimated distance of 2-8 miles. shortly after first observation, a smaller light emerged from the first, and took up position near it. then, a second did the same, along with a 3rd. emerged lights seemed to orbit in irregular patterns around original object, as the larger one slowly seemed to move to a heading of 180° after roughly 10 minutes of observation, the 3 other objects seemingly rejoined the original, as though they were docking.
(witness reporting is a pilot, and states that helicopters are incapable of docking, and that these craft, including craft from previous sightings in same location, behaved in ways impossible for even the most advanced military aircraft.)
the 4 objects were completely silent, and operated in a manner resembling spacecraft in orbit, though the objects maintained geological position ± 5° for 45 minutes, unlike an orbiting craft. unfortunately, it was dark, and any surface details of the objects were impossible to see. images will be provided in hopes that the reader of this report will observe them with photo editing software and share their observations with the witness.
at 2129 hours, craft was last photographed before disappearing in the following 5 minutes. craft was observed to 'fade away' instead of departing. (witness states that standard night-flying procedure involves the constant use of lights to display location to local traffic. to turn off lights at 9:30 pm would be unsafe.)
