Duration: 15 Seconds
V shaped formation floats across sky,

I was walking back home from a Midnight Snack at the local Gas Station. I was one block away from my house when I saw the all too familiar Boomerang Formation floating across the night sky slowly, and silently. The shape shifted from a Y formation, to a classic Chevron shape as it passed by.

I tried to "follow" the formation, but after a block or two it disappeared from my vision. Total time aproximately 15 Seconds.

I ran back home to wake my wife, who has witnessed these formations several times since November 18, 2001. However, she was fast asleep, so I went out with my video camera and stood across the street in a local park where there is no light. I scanned the sky to see if more formations would occur. Almost as expected, within minutes another Formation appeared, it was coming from the South, and heading North West. In all my sightings, they always come from the same direction. I suspect that I might live in the flight path of something. The craft appear to be very high in altitude and very difficult for my video camera to capture.

The formation was a V formation that floated across the sky silently. The moon was bright and after about 15 seconds I lost site of the formation.

I waited a few minutes to see if more would pass by, then I came inside to write this report.
