Flashing Lights Over Houston Texas

I have been aware of your site for years but didn't really think to write this down until now. Anyway, I was sitting in my back yard smoking a cigarette about 9 pm sometime during the early part of the year (I think it was in February) when I suddenly noticed a bright glowing object off to my right perhaps 1000-1500 ft. away and perhaps 50 degree angle from my position on the ground. The object really caught my attention because it made several rapid "jerking" maneuvers and then went through a rainbow of colors in a few seconds and then started flashing a white light. I quickly ran to the back door to call my roommate. He came out and observed the original object which had now begun to move to the northwest at a rather slow "helicopter-like" speed. By this time, two additional objects (flashing the same white light) appeared and were moving into formation with the first object. What was striking about their movement was its "unnaturalness" if you will. They both moved very quickly and literally stopped in an exact triangular formation with the first object. Then all three began flashing the same white light in unison. Suddenly, we noticed two additional objects literally appear out of no where and move into formation with the first three in the same odd manner. We watched the 5 objects move out of sight to the northwest. The entire sighting lasted perhaps 5 minutes. It should be noted that traditional aircraft were clearly visible at the time of the sighting as we live in the flight path of Bush International Airport and a local airport. We have never seen a UFO but we are confident we have now!
