Aircraft in formation

Peter: I am writing on behalf of the fireball tonight. Tonight while out on the lawn, myself and 4 other neighbors witnessed flashing aircraft lights heading east. The aircraft appeared to be flying in a formation. There were three total, and the aircraft appeared to be within yards of each other. 2 in the front side by side, and one following. It could not have been personal aircrafts or commercial aircrafts flying so close together. It is not normal to see military aircraft in our area, and myself and my neighbors were wondering why they were out flying in formation. Could they have been patrolling the area after the reported sightings tonight? I hope one of Art's listeners comes foward with video of this object. My information may not be f value, but I thought it was worth submitting. I never see military aircraft in our area. Keep up the good work!
