3 ruby-red lights, bright and distinctly visible.

Dear Brian Vike My wife and I live on the SE coast of Puerto Rico. I am a former U.S. Infantry officer, and 3,000 hour commercial pilot. We are in the habit of sitting on our roof at night talking and looking at the sky- it's cooler & breezier up there, and less buggy.

About 3 months ago we had an interesting experience that I'd like you to comment on, if possible.

At about 11 p.m. on a clear night, we both became aware, simultaneously, of 3 ruby-red lights, bright and distinctly visible, like car tail-lights or red aircraft nav lights, approaching us from south to north, right to left as we viewed them, in a symmetric V formation, one leading and two trailing. After 3 seconds of this motion, the 3 lights diverged, the lead light continuing straight, each of the trailing lights turning 90 degrees away from the original direction of motion. The lights passed more or less overhead as they made this divergence, then they didn't fade away into the distance but simply vanished out of sight in about 2 seconds. Literally, like poof, they're gone. It was stunning! It was a clear night with no other air traffic. The experience lasted 5 seconds, and we both subsequently agreed that we had observed exactly the same phenomenon. There was absolutely no sound, and no other lights visible. There was no way of judging altitude of the lights, but we had the "impression" that they were several thousand feet above sea level, and that the rate of movement must have been extremely rapid. I have seen F-4s fly directly overhead, and have observed a very large number of other aircraft movement over the years, and I can tell you without hesitation that those 3 lights were moving significantly faster than any aircraft in my experience, and in complete silence.

If you care to comment, I'm curious if this account sounds familiar to you, which is to ask, have other people witnessed anything similar? And what do you suppose those bright red lights were attached to?? Thanks, and cheers! (HBCC UFO has deleted the witnesses personal information) I would like to thank this witness for the report.
