I've seen this.. not two, it was just one. I was fishing at night on the Wapsipinicon River (in Cedar County, IA).. It was exactly this. An orb moving not too fast but not too slow. Definitely too fast to be a satellite...

I live in northern Wisconsin where the skies are clear and I've been seeing satellites all my life - these are definitely not satellites. I've never seen more than one satellite fly in formation like that. Not saying I'm an expert on satellites, just never saw any like that in all my years.

Good info. I don't know how satellites work, how or if they can change direction, etc., but I am wondering why I would see these over Iowa when they are supposedly for naval purposes.
Maybe some of the video. captures I got were indeed satellites, but I think based on all the other videos I've posted that the majority of these are for sure not satellites. I mean, based on my own footage, there is one capture with four orbs flying in formation, and the last three clips were all caught on the same night, I believe all within an hour. The point is that why would all these naval satellites be flying in their formations over my house? Isn't that a waste of resources? Can't one formation spy on one part of the earth, do they really all need to be tracking the same location?

On my vessel I have live-feed data, but I'm at home at present.
Here are 2 links to get you started but there are literally hundreds of sites you can visit to obtain the necessary data.

WTF....this is happening in my own backyard and yet I know nothing about this until now!!
I live in Cedar Rapids & I've seen a few odd things in the sky but didn't look much into it to be honest.
