    This should be reverted to the original, since it matched the Japanese that way.

    There were several stars seen in the sky.

    Perhaps "Several stars could be seen in the sky" can be added as an alternate translation for some other language.

    Several stars were seen in the sky.

    Please adopt the sentence then.

    Unfortunately, Google is not good at translating from Japanese. I really don't know any robot that does it well.
