My first UFO sighting... a moving constellation?

I saw my first UFO on 8/27/14, somewhere between 10:00-10:15pm.

Though I've really wanted to see a UFO, the night I saw it, I didn't expect to at all. Which is, I suppose, how it goes. Just went out at night, taking out the trash, when I just stopped and watched the sky. Clear skies. The stars were out. So I just looked. I looked mostly for the planes (there's a major commercial airport a good 40 minutes away) and satellites. So I'm familiar with what both look like. I saw a plane and I watched it go by overhead. But as it passed, going in a different direction, I saw the UFO. It didn't look anything like what I'd seen on youtube or read here on ATS. For somewhere between 3-5 seconds, I saw what looked like a compacted version of a Big/Little dipper soaring off until it disappeared.

Even as I saw it, I knew it wasn't THEE Big/little Dipper, but there were 5-7 white lights, that looked just like stars, shaped like a miniature Dipper constellation. The plane was still in my field of vision when I saw the UFO, and the UFO was faster than the plane... The plane was low enough to be obviously a plane. I could see the outline very clearly. So it wasn't that high up yet and I could hear the faint sound of it flying by. And still the UFO was faster, and there was no sound at all. It just looked like a mini constellation. The lights weren't uniform, they weren't set out in a grid pattern or anything. They didn't change color or zip around like the light from a laser pointer. It wasn't a triangle any aircraft shape at all. I'd read plenty of people mentioning UFOs that acted like stars, or were using stars as cover, but I haven't read any stories that talked about 5-7 of them moving together, at the same speed, in a miniature pattern of a constellation that would look out of place if it hovered. A Dipper constellation that looked only 1-2 inches long would really just stick out.

I've never heard or seen or read about anyone seeing something like this. Have any of you? Any thoughts?

So it was sort of a sideways 'S' shape of lights , if I'm picturing this correctly?
Cool to see.I've not heard of that, congrats on seeing it!

One thing if the plane was low enough to be seen, it was perhaps landing and not going so fast.

In TN especially where my parents live we have all witnessed this. I always look to my dad for the right answers but even he had no idea what it was. We often see groups of moving stars in the area. Here's some reports on Mufon that I dug up a while back when trying to find out if others had seen it as well.

I've had the same sightings in both Los Angeles & in the Virgin Islands more specifically a place called the Bitter End near Tortola. I know exactly what you're talking about!!

Yes, it was definitely some weirdo S/5 shape.

I'm in the suburbs. Just like 30-45 minutes north of Minneapolis, MN. So I live in the suburbs, but I'm really close to the big cities.

Thank you, Staroth, for the links. Did you see moving stars that moved as one unit?

Robbystarbuck, it's good to know you've seen them too!

Reminds me of the sighting i had a good 6+ years ago. But mine was a L shape with it moving with the flat horizontal part of the L being the 'front' i guess you could say and the vertical part of the L being the tail. It had 4 satellite sized and bright lights, 3 of them making up the L's ends and middle with a 4th light about a 3rd of the distance back from the middle light and end light.

I found out there are satellite groups when i goggled about it right after i saw it but the most i could find was of 3 lights and not in an L shape. And this one was moving in the same direction most satellites go unlike the satellite groups which i think are more north south orbits (they are spy or surveillance satellites i think), and at a slightly fast speed than I tend to see satellites move (but not by that much).

Still no idea what it was, ive seen tumbling space debri before that gives off a random series of flashes and strobes as it rotates and these didnt do that (a constant level of light was what i saw as it arced off into the horizon and got drowned out by the towns light pollution)...

Wont say its a UFO, but wont dismiss it either.
