Description: Myself and 2 friends were at the beach of Haslem Lake campground when directly above us we noticed a star shaped object. It was going sort of back and forth then would stop. It would sit there for a moment then start moving again. Other people started noticing and soon everyone in the campground was out on the beach watching. It then broke into 2 equally shaped stars and were flying back and forth across the sky. Then a third appeared, 2 would join back into one. They split apart then would join. It looked like they were very high up. They all became one after an hour or so and just disappeared. We all stayed out looking up for an hour or more but nothing else showed up. Haslem Lake is right in mountainous bush. We all noticed that wolves and coyotes howled none stop all night. These were not satellites or balloons. There was an astronomer there that night and these lights were nothing he had ever seen.
