3 objects that changed color and traveled, at first, in an upside down triangle shape, then split up were seen on Aug. 13, 2001.

Last night (8/13/01) around 10:45 pm, my husband and I were sitting on our bed watching TV. I got up to go to the kitchen, but my husband was in the middle of telling me something, so i stood, facing him, listening to him. He was sitting up resting his back on the wall underneath our window, so when I stood up I was facing the window (we had the blinds up). While I was looking at him, a bright light outside the window caught my attention. The object was very bright--it seemed to 'twinkle', and was gold in color. My husband noticed that I was no longer listening to him and asked what I was looking at. I told him about the bright light in the sky, and just as I finished telling him, I looked back at the object and I noticed that it was now many colors--they seemed to pulsate. I'm not sure of all the colors, but I know that one of the colors was green and another was red--whenever the red one 'blinked' it was brighter that the others. Almost immediately after seeing the object start to blink, two other objects 'appeared'. They were exactly like the first one I had observed, and all three together formed an 'upside down triangle' in the sky. They were motionless for about a minute, then began moving slowly, staying in their triangle formation. My husband also witnessed this. We stayed at the window to see if they would come back, and they did in about a minute. This time, however, they were not in formation and there were only two of them. They were split apart--when the three were together they were positioned between 2 trees, so they were in clear view--this time there was one behind each tree. Neither of the trees were thick with leaves, and the objects' lights were still blinking, so the objects were visible. They stayed behind the trees for a minute, then went way, then came back about a minute later, then went away again. We did not see them after this. My husband doesn't really believe in UFOs, so he keeps telling me that they were just airplanes or helicopters or something, but I ! used to live in Latrobe, near the airport, and also near a hospital, so I know what helicopters and airplanes look like, and believe me, these objects were neither airplanes or helicopters. Also, my cat was acting really strange all through the night and this morning. She got under the covers last night to bite and scratch one of my feet (which she has never done before). In fact, she got so aggressive that it woke me up a few times. Also, this morning when I got up she started hissing at me and making weird sounds and her fur was standing straight up, like she was spooked.
