large red light with smaller white flashing lightsI walked outside to take a quick peek at the sky hoping for the chance of a few meteors, my daughter missed the two nights before. A red bliking light caught my attention as it was ascending upward in the sky. At this point I called my boyfriend outside. There is a tree in the middle of our back yard that sits in front of the door so naturally he looked upward and started laughing at me. There was an airplane headed over our house travelig west to east. I told him NO it was that way (in which the tree was blocking). We went down the yard past the tree and it was a large red light with smaller white lights. It was traveling north cut around at almost a 90 degree angle and headed south. It was silent and traveled faster than any other aircraft i have ever seen. It was much flying much lower than a typical aircraft would. I was so shocked and amazed watching it that i didnt even see where the other two aircraft came from but one came from each side and joined t! he one i was watching, they were flying in a v formation and continued to go south, then at what i would approximate being about 10 miles away they hovered in the same spot and position for about 7 minutes, at which point i went inside.
