it was roughly 13 lights in a triangle shaped formation flying in a zig-zag pattern from north to south. speed was unknown, except they traveled from horizon to horizon in the matter of a few brief seconds.

As a preteenager us boys would hung out in a backyard to have UFO watches. This one night all of us (5) for one very brief moment in time. Saw 13 small white lights flying in a triangle pattern, zig-zaging across the sky. As they moved from horizon to horizon across the sky. Less than 5 seconds. These lights never broke formation. These lights where traveling at a very high rate of speed. I would estimate that these lights where at least 50,000 feet in the air. The speed of these lights, plus the hard, sharp turns of the zig-zag formation. Truly convinces me, that what we saw that night. Was not part of this earth. I know this could be easily passed off as kids with over active imaginations. But, we truly saw something that night. A few years latter. I came across a picture of what we saw. This UFO book described it as the "Lubbock Lights" I showed this picture to my buddies. We all agreed that this is what we saw.
