Duration:2.5 hours
I acrobatic, 3 in formation, bright light coming from ground near ranches

The UFO was a bright light in the western sky, at first I mistook if for an aircraft, until it changed direction and started doing maneuvers that standard aircraft can't accomplish. It was obviously not a star, as it had the same type of reflection that satellites, the ISS, aircraft, etc have from the moon and sun. It changed directions randomly and suddenly, and sometimes sat still. To the north of the UFO doing accrobatics was a triangular formation of 3 other lights, that I first thought was the tail of the little dipper, but realized it wasn't the dipper since the "dipper" portion was missing. Looked like the formation might be moving very slowly but couldn't tell. Kept my attention mostly on the acrobatic, looking at the formation every 10 minutes or so. After an hour, went inside to take a shower (aprox 15 minutes), came back out and the formation had moved higher in the sky and closed into a perfect triangle. The moving light was still present and in the same area, and started to see random flashing lights coming from the ground, what seemed to be maybe 20 miles northwest of town, out near ranches and farms. Continued to watch for about another hour. About midnight finally went to bed as the UFO kept repeating itself and I had to go to work early.
