On the night of Aug 23, 2014 I was standing on my balcony watching various satellites and meteors in a beautifully clear night sky. I noticed something moving to the South and realised I was looking at 7 or 8 chevron shaped objects flying very fast on a straight path Northward. I spoke out loud asking myself "what is that?" and was fixed staring at the objects as they flew directly overhead. The objects looked kind of dark orange or red with no exterior lights. The surface looked to have a matt finish and it was hard to pick them out from the black sky. As the objects moved away to the North I felt the hairs on the back of my neck standing up, I had goosebumps and my eyes had filled with tears. I have never seen anything as clear as that before, something that I could not even explain with alternatives. They were not aircraft that I know of, there was no sound, definitely NOT birds, they had a solid looking exterior and must have been travelling extremely fast as they traversed the entire sky in less 30 seconds. This experience has left me a little traumatised in that I can not get the image of them out of my head. I wished that I'd tried to photograph the event but it all happened so fast and also I was mesmerised by their appearance.
