We where at a drive in movie, it was my family and my fiance. My mother first noted the objects. Due to her recent outpatient surgery and her consumption of pain medication we ignored her when she first told us about the lights. About ten minutes into the first movie I noticed small lights maneuvering strangely in the sky. I quickly asked everyone else if they saw it too. To my astonishment they had been watching it for a while. The objects where very fast and made pinpoint turns. Sometimes they flew in formations, sometimes they flew irradically. They almost seemed to be chacing each other sometimes. Then other times they would be completely stationary. They looked almost like fireflies. Thats what I dismissed them as at first. But then when a small cloud flew over i noticed that they where far above it. They seemed to be in space. I think this because at times they would fly in a large circle moving away from me and then back towards me. When they flew to the backside of the circle they would dissapear, then a second later they would reapear on the opposite side. Finally after about an hour of these acrobatics another craft appeared. It was the same as the others and it approached them from the center of the sky. When it came close to them they all stopped moving. They remained motionless untill the other craft joined them. Then one by one they quickly streeked out of sight.
