Location: Columbia Falls, MT
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
3 lights in the sky

I was standing outside with my brother having a smoke and happened to look up in the sky. It looked like it was just a satellite moving accross the sky but it lit up for maybe 10 seconds brighter than the North Star. Then it suddenly changed direction and faded away. Right behind it came another one that followed it, then a third came from a different direction and disapeared in the same area as the first two.

I really have know clue what it was but I have noticed that the past week there has been a lot more activity in the sky at night than I have ever seen before. I have seen shooting stars,sattellites, etc. But this was just really weird.

Just the first one made a real bright light, the others were dim but they moved very fast. Possibly aircraft?
