V-shaped amber lights

On Monday, November 17, 2008 at about 6:20pm, I got out of my car and was walking towards my house when I just happened to look up in the sky and something caught my eye. It was moving smoothly and steadily across and in a v-shape. There were these light sorts of hazy amber lights. I tried to count as they flew over my head--it looked like 6 lights and I couldn’t determine how far away they were, but I was so enamored, that I realized I wasn’t even breathing. I watched as it continued to fly in a SE direction and then it disappeared. I looked around for someone else to witness but it was too late.

So, then I called my mother on my cell phone to tell her what I saw. As I was speaking to her another one appeared so I got of the phone and ran to my neighbors. It more or less was heading in the same direction as the last one. By the time my neighbor got outside it was gone. Of course, I was thinking to myself, "I must have a witness or people are going to think I’m loosing it." Well, we waited a few minutes but we didn’t see anything. I asked my neighbor if he’s ever seen a UFO and he said ‘Actually, yes about 30 years ago I was with my young sons and I pulled over to look at my car’s engine at night and they noticed a flying object that was flying sporadically and not like an aircraft at all.’ So, after that I went inside. But decided to go to my other neighbors who has a roof top deck.

We all went on the deck and I thought to myself, what are the chances we’ll see something else. About 10 – 15 minutes went by and the same amber triangular lights appeared from the Northwest. This time they were closer than the two other times. They flew right over our heads! 5 lights total in a very tight v-shape absolutely silent and the lights looked like two equal lines in a cross shape. My neighbor’s mouths just dropped open. None of us could utter a word and then, like the others, it disappeared to the SE direction.

We all shared what we witnessed then just a couple minutes later and shooting star/meteor looking bright light shot over our heads and fizzed out. After that we didn’t see anything else. Quite remarkable.
