Yellow/Orange fireball type objects flying in triangular formation hovering just north of the La Crosse, WI airport over Lake Onalaska

From approximately 20:20 to 20:28 I witnessed 12 fireball shaped objects in the sky that were flying in formation. Four separate triangular shaped formations, which consisted of 3 fireball objects in each triangular formation. At different times, one fireball object would break away from their triangular formation and move in very rapid movement; appearing to move horizontally away from their group of three fireballs and then rapidly rejoin their formation after 3 to 4 rapid movements away from their group of three. The four groups of three went from a straight line and then formed a “V” shape almost like a flight of geese does. I spoke with three other individuals who also saw it, but I also witnessed other people along my drive who were pointing to them in the sky. This took place over Lake Onalaska, just north of the La Crosse airport, between La Crosse, WI and Onalaska, WI. The fireballs moved too erratically and were shaped too round to be convent! ional, manmade aircraft. They seemed to have the ability to cloak themselves because one minute they were visible and the next they were gone. They had the ability to hover, but they also had the ability to move very quickly as well. I’ve never witnessed anything like it. I was driving south on Hwy 35 and attempted to call my wife on my cell phone who was at a friend’s house to see if she could see what I was witnessing and my cell phone was unable to get a signal to complete the call. The area I was in always has a cellular signal available, but I can only speculate that the objects in the sky had the ability to disrupt the cellular signal, because once they were no longer visible, the cellular communications were restored. When I made it to the location where my wife was at, three other people at the house saw what I was talking about; the strange thing is, from their location only three of the fireball objects were visible…again I can only speculate that from their! perspective the other objects were cloaked. Cellular signals! were sp otty for the rest of the night. The time of the sighting was during dusk or sunset lighting….again speculation that maybe that type of lighting makes it difficult for their objects to cloak themselves. These objects were in my opinion definitely not manmade.
