Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Fresno, CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:40 TO 60 SECONDS
AS I SAT IN MY PARENT'S BACK YARD FACING DIRECTLY SOUTH, I NOTICED 6 LIGHTS SIDE BY SIDE MOVING AT A FARELY FAST PACE. THEY WERE SIDE TO SIDE (EAST/WEST FORMATION). THEY WERE HEADING DIRECTLY NORTH. AS THEY APPROACHED, THEY EACH CHANGED FORMATION INTO A TRIANGULAR FORMATION. THERE WAS NO SOUND AT ALL. APPROXIMATELY 2 MINUTES LATERANOTHER FORMATION OF 5 CAME FROM THE SAME DIRECTION. THESE WERE SIDE BY SIDE, AND AS THEY PASSED OVER STARTED TO CHANGE INTO A "V" FORMATION. AGAIN, NO SOUND. I TRIED CONTACTING THE AIR GUARD IN TOWN, AND THE TOWER AT THE AIRPORT, BUT NO ONE WOULD WOULD TALK TO ME. I REALIZED SOMETHING WAS HAPPENING WHEN SIX MONTHS LATER I SAW THE ARIZONA SIGHTINGS OF THESE LIGHTS. THE NIGHT I SAW THESE LIGHTS WAS THE NIGHT THE LIGHTS LEFT ARIZONA. IF YOU WOULD LIKE FURTHER INFO, YOU CAN CALL ME AT (559) ((number deleted)). MY NAME IS ((name deleted)). THANK YOU.
