Possible ufo meeting 01/1995 in Northern New York State

What I am about to relate has left an indelible picture in my mind that I'll always be able to see in thought and the details are as clear as I remember them from that January of 1995.

I was working the midnight shift in an outside perimeter post at an area correctional facility during the month of January, 1995, exact date un-recalled. This facility is located on a mountain top covering an expansive area and the perimeter shack was located in an area where the facility lighting was somewhat blocked for better night vision of the perspective area to be observed.

I retired in the spring of 1995, so this event took place in the winter prior to my retirement, though the exact date in January I don't remember. I do remember that it was crispy cold out and there was snow on the ground and the sky was extremely clear, black and filled with stars. I'm guessing that it was between two and three o'clock when I left the warmth of the perimeter shack to go outside to relieve myself of all my coffee intake and just happened to scope the very clear and starry sky when I noticed a bright light which at first I thought was a shooting star or satellite, speed and stop suddenly almost directly overhead and remained still, maintaining its' yellowish reflection as did all five objects, which I'm assuming was the reflection from the sun, when suddenly another appeared of the same size and speed, and then another shot in, and then a fourth one sped in, and then a fifth, each from different directions at an unbelievable rate of speed and seemed to hover there for maybe forty to fifty five seconds or so, not touching each other, but very close to one another as if they were having a meeting. Each of these lights where about the size of the hole at the end of a common ball point pen and left a slight tail that diminished when they stopped and there was no noise, possibly because they were so far away. The yellowish reflection color was the only color that was noticable, if there were any other colors at all, I believe these objects were to far away to distinguish any running lights or maybe the suns' reflective beam devoured any other colors. You could have placed all five object lights into the diameter size of a dime or even smaller area. I watched for what I am guessing for about a minute or so and then they all suddenly sped off at the same time, at the same devastating speeds that they showed up at, in the same general directions that they all originally came from. I was totally amazed at what I had just witnessed and sort of wondered if I actually saw what I saw. I spent a g! ood hour or more out in the cold night peering for more of this action, but saw none and eventually the sun began to rise and I lost the night sky vision. I said absolutely nothing to anyone at my work place at the time because of the ridicule and possible accusations that I was halucinating or something and with the exception of a few friendly conversations over the years, very little has been to said to anyone until now. I can still see it so clearly in my mind. If I had had a camera at that time and was able to photograph this account, it would be even more believable than what it already is.

I was reading some of these reports in this space and thought I would share this account and experience. Just possibly, someone else out there may have observed this same phenomenon that took place in January of 1995 and maybe state what they had seen also. I am a firm believer in extraterrestial life and feel that we are not alone or the only intelligent being in existance in this universe....Thank You.....
