Location: Somers, WI
Shape: Formation
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Three orange lights, soundlessly moving north in a vee formation above the town of Somers, WI

Right around dusk, sitting in my neighbors yard, my friend and I were looking south and saw 3 orange lights in a perfect v formation slowly moving north at a slow rate of speed. I live in an airplane flight zone and close to a small airport, so lights in the sky is something I am used to. The reason this object or objects caught my eye was that it was July 4th and people were starting to light off fireworks so I was looking around to which neighbors were lighting them off. The 3 lights were exactly the same distance apart the whole time I was watching them. They were about the same distance up in the sky as the smaller airplanes are right before they land at the Kenosha Airport, just south of my house(about 5 miles away). They were not making a sound and then the left light(on the east side) slowly went out. It was not like a light switch being turned off, though. It almost seemed to fade out. The other 2 lights kept moving at the same rate of speed, the ! same distance apart for another 30 seconds and then the back right light(on the west side) went out the same way as the first. The front orange light was still on and moving at the same speed, same height for another 20 seconds and then that light disappeared. My friend and I looked at each other and said what the heck was that. About 20 seconds after that, I saw a black triangular shaped object behind my friends head, about the same height, moving the same speed, making not a single sound moving north. I asked him if he could see it, but at the picnic table he was facing west and by the time he turned around and tried to look for it, he said he saw nothing. I got up from the table and ran across the street to my house to follow it, but after it went behind the trees in my neighbors yard to the east, I could not see it anymore. I am a very skeptical person, but I saw something I have never seen before in my life. The reason I thought it was more than one object was because! when I saw it at first, it looked like 3 objects moving toget! her in f ormation, but I could not see a separation of any material or a specific form that would have definitely made me think it was one object. When I saw it behind my friends head, all I saw was 1 triangular object which made me think I had seen 3 lights on the corners of 1 vehicle before they went out. The fact that there was no noise at all, even though it was July 4th, was really eerie.
