Five Black Triangles In Formation Directly Overhead

There were five black triangles in the sky directly overhead of my vantage point. They were moving very slowly in a due south direction. The formation was in the shape of a cross with one triangular craft in the front, then three black triangular crafts. The line of three black triangular crafts was perpendicular to an invisible line from the center of the first triangular craft to the center of the trailing black triangular craft. That particular craft was trailing a little distance in the rear of the main formation.

All of them had very small red lights on all three tips of their triangular shapes. The center craft in the formation had a bright white strobing light directly in the center on the bottom. The shapes were each about the size of a dime held at arms length. There was absolutely no discernable sound from the formation before they were overhead, during the flyover, and after they'd passed. They were totally silent, almost as if they were five black phantoms (ghosts).

So far, NOBODY has given me an explanation of what they are, or were. They DEFINITELY weren't B-2 bombers or F-117 aircraft. I'm very familiar with those military planes and the shape of their wings. I've heard of black triangular flying objects before, but never any details about them.

I don't carry a camera around with me and had never seen unexplained flying objects before, so I went home and created a .gif of the formation and shapes of the craft I saw.

Being a trained illustrator for 25 years, having a BFA in art, and a USAF veteran who spent many nights on guard at USAF bases, I am a trained observer. Like I said, I'd never seen UFOs before and don't anticipate ever seeing anything like that again.

BTW, I called my youngest son (30 yrs old) outside to look at the sight and he saw them, too. His comment was, "WEIRD", quickly followed by, "don't you ever tell anyone my name and that I witnessed it. I don't need a bunch of people crawling all over my yard and microphones stuck up to my face."

I guess that makes me the only reliable witness in my family.
