Duration: 30 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Prescott, AZ, USA

Shape: Formation


Summary : Saw 5 bright lights in triangle formation in the northand heading southeast at an extremely fast speed.

Here's what I saw. I was taking the dogs out before bed (I'mnot exactly sure what the time was, around 2100 I think)and I looked to the north and saw 5 very bright white lightsin a triangle (or V) formation moving really fast southeast.Then they broke formation. The light in the back and below(from my angle) slowed up. Now I started to wonder what I waslooking at because most planes would keep formation or at leastbreak formation completely. Never saw a plane with lights asbright as these also. The group seemed to rotate 90 degrees tothe left and go a little south of Mingus mountain. I was suprisedthat I couldn't hear them so I listened harder. I did hear thesound of a faint rustling in the sky, not like a jet, but of somethinmoving extremely fast through the air. The sound was a ways behindthem also and did seem to follow them. I then started lookingaround at two other planes flying. Sessna's by the sound andspeed of them. Also by the red flashing lights. I saw the lights fadeinto the distance and I headed back inside. My first notion was whathas our government got up there? New stealth technology? Then whythe lights? I also thought the lack of sound could have been some formof some top secret frequency cancellation system that the governmentis checking out. But still, why the lights?It didn't hit home that these could possibly be UFO's until I heardpeople talking about it on Friday. Then I knew I had seen somethingthat was definately unexplainable. At least by me.It was definately not the comet, flair, balloon, or any other thing ofthat nature.Anyway, feel free to call if you want more information
