Silent, green object sits under color-changing friendThe event began with a silent, green object flying over my father-in laws house in a straight line. It seemed to be made up of 10-11 smaller circular green lights, all of equal size and none blinking.This object flew at a consistent speed and was too bright to be at a high altitude but was too quiet (silent) to be at a low altitude. This motivated me to follow the object across the sky, expecting it to turn toward one of the airports nearby. It didn't and instead decreased in speed, finally stopping directly "under" a distant, yellow-white star. At this point my father-in-law and wife started viewing the object, as I had been narrating the trajectory to them as kind of a satire on UFO's.Then, the "star" above the object changed to red. Not light red but fully red. This was NOT a star at all. Soon thereafter a third object, much smaller or farther away, moved directly over the two objects, then frooze. Then it was gone. We got out binoclulars and were able to clearly see the multiple green lights on the original object. The second object also could be seen going from red to white aver minute or so.As these objects slowly dipped below the horizon another set of 3 bright objects came into view and formed a triangle, then remained motionless, until also slipping out of view.For all of us, it was our first UFO experience.
