Multiple flashing white lights...

While watching the Monday night football game on 08/27/01 at 20:30:00 I witnessed one flashing white light out my bedroom window at 280°. I live in an area where privet airplane traffic fly right over the house in route to or taking off from the Danbury airport. I watched kind of surprised, it was foggy; nevertheless you could see the bright white flashing light fine, I thought it was an airplane. This went on for about eight to ten seconds. Shortly thereafter the sky lit up there were flashing white lights all over the place sporadically and extremely fast then at one point throughout what was happening they were sequential and lighting up all together diagonally. I called my wife upstairs she witnessed the spectacle for about ten seconds. Then like nothing happened they were gone. I don't know, I know I'm not crazy I've never seen anything like this in my life. I took a ride in my car to see if others witnessed what I had, there were plenty of people out however all were just going about their business. My wife calleed the Danbury Airport She actually talked with someone in the control tower, she was told there were no aircraft in that location at that time. There was one aircraft in the sky located at 180°.
