Duration:5 MIN.'S
OBSERVED THREE VERY BRITE LITES FLYING ACCROSS THE NIGHT SKY.

I WAS DRIVING ALONG BRUCKNER BLVD. WHEN I DROVE OFF THE HIGHWAY ONTO CASTLEHILL AVE. TWO MINUTES LATER WHILE DRIVING ON CASTLEHILL AVE. I D HEARD AND THEN OBSERVED AN AIRPLANE FLY ACCROSS (HEADING NORTH) THE SKY. FAR BEHIND THE AIRCRAFT I SAW THREE VERY BRIGHT LIGHTS FLYING TOWARDS THE AIRCRAFT AT A VERY HIGH RATE OF SPEED EVENTUALLY CATCHING UP TO THE AIRCRAFT AND PASSING IT. THE THREE LIGHTS WERE STEADY AND DIDN'T BLINK, BUT I OBSERVED THEM SWITCH POSITIONS TWICE. THEY CONTINUED TO FLY ACCROSS THE SKY VERY FAST. AT THIS POINT I HAD DRIVEN A COUPLE OF MILES ALONG A STRETCH OF LONELY DARK ROAD TRYING TO KEEP THE THREE LIGHTS WITHIN MY VIEW. EVENTUALLY THE SITE OF THE THREE LIGHTS DISIPATED INTO THE CLOUDLESS NIGHT SKY.
