Flying reddish "V" shape w/ moving lights over Richmond, Va

On 4/2/14, I was sitting in my backyard in Richmond, Va, with my girlfriend and her friend at about 9:00pm. We were talking about something or other and out of the corner of my eye I noticed something strange. At first glance I thought it was a flock of birds in a “V” formation but after I looked closer, I realized they were lights with a reddish-white glow.

There were approximately 10-12 of these lights forming the shape and the V was not a solid shape, with each light moving individually and the “V” shape was changing as well, with one side becoming longer and almost straightening out into a full line as it flew across the sky.

After I noticed it, I pointed it out immediately and the other two people witnessed it as well. It was a clear night and the lights stood out greatly in contrast to the sky. The entire event lasted about 20-25 seconds.

The lights came from the north-east sky and travelled of in a western direction. The lights came overhead of us and past us and then just disappeared from sight. They didn’t appear to move away quickly as they were before but they just simply disappeared.

I am a business professional with a college degree and I have never experienced anything like this. I can usually explain most things of this nature but the way this craft moved was the most inhuman thing I have ever seen. So fluid and quiet, no sound from engines and each light in the “V” formation was moving independently with all the lights finally almost completely straightening out before disappearing.

Definitely strange and most certainly not anything of this world.
