Man recalls back in the 1960's of three trangular shaped objects moving northwest over his hometown toward Lake Erie in the night sky.

Not sure as to what date now or even the year but I do know that what I witnessed was also verified 50 miles away over Lake Erie by Erie Weather Radar. They could have records,possibly. I was standing outside on the sidewalk near my friends house waiting for him to come back out.It was dark out and a cloudless sky.I was looking up at the stars when movement caught my eye. Moving across the sky above in a southeast to northwest direction were three triangular objects.They had no lights on them but even though it was dark,I could see them plainly because they "glowed" a lumninous "blue" color.As I said, they were triangular in shape ,but the corners of each triangle were rounded.They were in a triangular formation also,with one being in front and the other two behind and on each side of the lead craft.I listened and could not hear any sound what-so-ever coming from them .They just seemed to glide across the sky.I made sure that even after they went out of sight I listened in case there was a sound like jets going over and there was none. My friend then came back out to tell me he had to do homework and I quickly told him what I had just seen . I said goodbye to him and told him I was going home to tell my parents what I had witnessed. I was a block from my home at my friends house and I ran the whole way which couldn't have taken more than 5 minutes from the time I saw the objects ,told my friend about and then ran to my house. When I got home ,I ran in and started telling my mother what I had seen .As I was telling her ,a news bulliton came over the local radio station :(my mother was listening to music on the radio) that Erie Weather Radar had just reported tracking "three unidentified objects" on their radar moving in a northwest direction over Lake Erie.Thatwas the only time that the incedent was disgussed.I never saw anything on the news or in the newspapers about it. By the way ,Erie is aprox.50 miles northwest of Titusille. What really amased me was the fact that no more than 10 minutes had passed since I had seen them and already the Erie Weather Radar had reported it to the local radio stations !! I'm sure what they saw and what I did were the same craft.I've always wondered if anyone else had ever seen those same craft. I guess that is why I am finally reporting this.Of course , any time I have ever talked about it to friends ,they look at me like "Wow, what planet did this guy drop from?" . I'm sure you know what I mean . But , ever since then , I have made an effort to watch the skies everytime I get a chance and have had 2 other sightings . But they were different than the ones I saw back then. One was a couple years after that when that same friend and I were "sleeping -out" in a ballfield on a hill so we could watch the meteor showers and the other was in Elk County in October, 1974 when I and a friend saw 2 craft which were later chased by 3 jets. But then, those to sightings are for other reports,I guess.
