Location: Whitesburg, KY
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Black triangle with red lights on corners and two brighter "escorts" silently fly overhead in night sky.

Saw black triangle with two bright lights flying nearby. Triangle had red light on each corner. It appeared that the two bright lights were other craft flying along with the triangle.

The triangle went from left to right in the night sky from my vantage point with the two other bright light "crafts" changing positions along side the triangle as if they were an escort or something to the same effect.

The flight path was to the best of my memory from a se direction moving toward nw in the sky. The night sky this night was brighter than the past few and had a gray hue so the black triangle stood out against the lighter sky backdrop. No sounds were heard during the entire viewing.

I have seen local air traffic before above the area and this triangle appeared to be of the same altitude based on how known aircraft appear when viewed.
