A flotilla of eerie UFOs in Oregon skies?

Starry Night Over the Rhone, Vincent Van Gogh, 1888

  Sadly, no. Now that would have been incredible. Instead, a beautiful and slightly eerie effect in last night's sky in Eugene. Our weather here the past couple of days has been rainy, very windy (up to 40 miles an hour), and very warm. Looking up at the sky around 10:00 last night, and for just one exciting, fleeting moment thought I'd seen a UFO. I quickly realized it was not such thing, just a very bright star that seemed to be moving rapidly across the sky, directly overhead. Then I noticed several smaller bright lights chasing or following the mothership. :)
   But of course there wasn't any mothership or orbs or scout ships up there. Just the starry sky and the wind blowing the clouds, which gave the appearance of several scudding stars. A beautiful and slightly exhilarating sight.
