circularly moving lights around an "invisible" cylinder transforms into V triad of lights with a red and green tail lightI

August 20, 2011. 12th and Locust, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania It was approximately 10:00 PM and my daughter and I were in the car waiting for a friend. We were sitting and chatting when we heard a load noise that sounded like rubber hitting a fan, while simultaneously looking up and seeing an object. The UFO were streams of moving lights that seemed to enclose a spool-shaped "invisible" form; there was a form but it was cloaked. Both of us were staring at it and wondering out load what it was when we witnessed it tilt down towards 7:00 position, then fold backward and stretch out into a "V" triad of lights, with a green (top) and red (bottom) light following directly behind the triad.

It started to move slowly down 12th when we lost sight of it. I tried unsuccessfully to follow it.
