In New Orleans, approximately 7 spheres silently travel in a straight line then become triangle as they move overhead.

At approximately 9:15 pm I was walking my dog in River Ridge, Louisiana. River Ridge is a suburb of New Orleans. I glanced over my right shoulder and noticed a group of grayish, white spheres traveling through the air. They were silent, and fast. The whole event took less than 10 seconds. I continued to watch them fly overhead, and just as they did, the line broke formation and formed a triangle with one sphere in the middle. I noticed as they moved they sort of fluttered, not much though, as if they were being knocked by slight currents in the air. They appeared small to me, and I probably wouldn't have noticed them had there not been so many of them. I will admit that I have never believed in these sorts of things. I am not a sci-fi fan, or anything like that. I am still skeptical of what I saw, but I will certainly never forget it. One more fact to add to my skepticism, I live within 10 miles of the New Orleans International Airport.
