i was out star gazing on march 31 2013 in the field next to my place. i was viewing north with my nikon binoculars, a hand light w/strobe and a green and a blue star pointer ready. as i was looking near the big dipper's handle an object appeared moving from ne to nw. the object "faded" into being and after viewing an orange sphere/orb in my binocs, illuminated it with my laser. the object immediately got very bright and flashed/strobed once. then there was a second object that immediately appeared/faded into being below and trailing. this object then brightened and flashed like the first as another object appeared and flashed also, above and trailing farther behind both the others, forming a large triangle. i used my laser to illuminate the third object and then all three strobed/flashed at once seemingly from the objects centers. like a black point had formed and strobed out but light flashed off them, too. they all then dimmed and were gone while moving through the big dipper's handle.
a few minutes after this, three objects flew over my position from different directions. one flying west to east, one flying ne to sw in a curving path and the last from east to west.
my reaction has become one of excited expectation after having witnessed this type of display numerous times. i recently obtained a new computer and will now take time to report.
