Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Shape: Formation
Duration:1-2 minutes
5 lights with orange trails

In the west sky were 5 lights flying north. All lights had orange streaks eminating from the rear except for the leading light. One streak seemed to be at an angle towards the ground for a time. Each light was traveling at the same speed relative to one another. This made it appear as if it could have been one object with lights on the corners. It appeared as if the color between the lights was darker than the background of the sky. There was no aircraft sound. One of the fainter lights were blue. After the formation flew a few miles north, it began to turn east and out of sight. A police officer was in the parking lot behind us. He told us it was fighter planes with their after-burners on. I suppose this could be true but I work outside at night and I've never seen anything like it before.
