|triangle formation as storm approached
A thunderstorm was approaching from the NW and flashes of lightning could be seen. I stepped out of my shop to observe and immediately after a flash of lightning i saw 10 black or dark objects in a triangle formation,4 on top,3 on next level,then 2 then 1. The objects disappeared quickly after the flash. At first I attributed the objects to my eyes being affected by the flash but then 8 seconds later another flash of lightning occurred and the same formation appeared close to where the previous formation was sighted. Both sightings were near the top of well-known lone mountain with flat terrain on all sides.
