Duration:5 to 8 minutes
I was taking out the trash at 8:55 pm monday night the 5 th of october.after dumping the trash I was observing the sky,and the inter-mittent cloud cover that was rolling through our area.And looking up to my right hand side which would have been looking to the west I saw 4 oblects moving in A tetrahedril pattern, with A fourth object directly behind it, right in perfect line with the other three objects.and directly to the east of where I was standing there was another formation exactly the same as the formation I had just observed.

I was taking out the trash on 10/05/98 at approxamitely 8:55 pm after dumping the trash,I was observing,the very fast moving inter-mittent cloud cover when I observed the first 4 objects to the west of my position,they were in A very tight formation, with the lead craft lit up like A florescent light just as white as you could get.with the fourth,object directly behind it, but the way it was behind these other craft it was perfectly center'd that the way it looked from my position that you could of drawn A straight line through the middle of the formation, not only that but directly to the east of where I was standing there was another group of 4 U.F.O.'S. In exactly the same formation as the first group.Now to the weird part of the sighting, in both group's the lead object was the only one that was illuminated,but there was A full moon tonight wich to me should of lit them up A little bit but they were as dark as the night sky including the trailer on both group's. I observed the two group's for about 5 to 8 minutes cloud cover permitting.the location of my sighting was on the north side of the town 1/4 mile west of I-45 north and the airtex exit.
