I am sending this in order to correct some errors in my previous entry of 3/4/2004.

Three lights in a triangular white light formation without red flashing lights moving slowly from the west to the east making no sound.

It was in Jackson, Mississippi near the intersection of North State Street and Presto Lane. It was a moonless sky before sunrise. At least I do not remember seeing the moon. I saw three white or yellowish white lights moving slowly from the west to the east in a triangular formation at an undeterminable altitude and velocity. I assumed that these lights were all part of one object because they did not move in relation to each other (their triangular pattern remained stable). There was no red flashing red light that is typically seen with aircraft at night nor was there a sound of a jet or propeller engine nor was there the chopping sound of the rotary blades of a helicopter. There was no apparent sound at all. The light formation was close enough so that if I extended my hand that the two outer lights could just be seen on either side of my index finger. The lack of red flashing lights is what captured my attention and inclined me to get a better look. I was indoors when I first saw it but I went out doors within less than a minute of first seeing it and watched it move east disappearing into the eastern sky. When I got out doors it was still close enough to still clearly make out three lights. Several minuets later as the sun was coming up I saw an airplane moving in exactly the opposite direction with the typical red flashing light and propeller engine sound.

I assume it could be some type of military air craft.
