Location: Lawrence, KS
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 seconds
Chevron or V shaped formation of hazy (no lights) objects silently moving at incredible speed.

My friend and I were outside enjoying the evening and a couple of cigars. We were looking up at the stars that we saw. There were very few because we were in the heart of the city. All of the sudden we see this jet roaring towards us coming from the south west and flew overhead. We ran inside to tell my friends fiance about the jet. She obiviously heard it. About 3 minutes later we went outside to finish our cigars. All of the sudden 3-5 triangular to oval objects flying at high altitude and incredible speed in a chevron or "W" shaped formation. The objects had no light except for a slight haziness(almost like the lights from the city were reflecting off of them) and made no sound whatsoever. They flew right behind a tree that was blocking our line of sight and I run away from the tree so that I can catch another glimpse of them. By the time I got to where my sight was not obstructed, about 4-5 seconds, they were gone. Of course, we dismissed them as a flock of geese traveling in a V but the objects were traveling towards the north and they made no honking noises which got us to thinking that these were not geese. The "objects" were also traveling at high altitudes and incredible velocity so we ruled them out as geese. We now believe that the jet was maybe some sort of escort of some sort, maybe sweeping the area with a radar. We have no explination for the "objects" we saw.
