Shape: Triangle
Duration:30-45 minutes
Loud booms n weird tangle

There was a lot of air traffick but anyway fireworks started n the stars started being visible for Independence Day so I went to look at the sky cuz a baby is about to b born in my family tonight n I noticed a lot of bright lights which I thought to be planets n one in particular was the brightest n I noticed 2 not so bright stars connected to a triangle n looking to my left another triangle with 1 bright star n then tried to see if any connected to a star or anything to connect all 4 or 5 bright lights but it was weird the 1st really bright one never moved but the others seemed to be getting further apart so went to the front of house see if I could get a bigger view. N the 1st triangle literally went from perfect 3 triangle to a long /l triangle. So go back to back yard n I notice yes there is fireworks going on around but there is booms n sounds like boom and hitting something n no sizzle or pretty fireworks in one certain area of the sky. Like I could still see sky n stars but I could see weird flashes of light in the sky like it was reflecting behind an invisible object.

N then all of a sudden one of the lights broke away from the 1st really bright light n blanketed the sky slowly within 5 min I couldn't see mountains in background or any of the stars except straight up in the sky. N I suddenly got a whiff of I dunno gun powder fireworks but smooth n less harsh n only for a second. I noticed the 1st bright light had another light replaced n a triangle again.

I got my binoculars n zoom in the bright light had 3 lights n it was like the triangle was tilted facing toward where the booms were booming from. I went inside after about 30-45 min n don't know what happen after the.
