Three strange lights appear in sky between the U.S. A and Canada to be shortly followed by scrambled Jet.

last nite 08/06/03,I was getting ready for work just after 10pm. I shut off the fan in my bedroom window. I looked out the window to observe a dredging crew positioned in the first lock -of the sault locks-. In the sky to my north closer to the Canadian side of the river approx 1/2 miles away i saw a bright light. a secon or two later i noticed another light coming across the eastern part of my viewing area . the second light crossed the horizon e to west to the same general area just north of my position. these lights went back and forth up and down in the night sky back and forth across my vewing area. from th american side to the canadian side. I called my wife to come and watch the lights. A my wife came to the front door to watch the strange lights with me a third light appeared from the west over the international bridge.I thought what in the heck are they ,they definately were not airplanes as they moved too eratic. I figured maybe they were Cost guard helicopters as from time to time they do go up the river to the coast guard base. But these lights would get brighter and dim out flash very brightly and fly eratic patterns east to west north to south around each other.. My wife an i thought that maybe theywere choppers and it was a serch and rescue mission in the saint mary's river.We observed them for about 25 mins. and they one by one would go west from our view over the international bridge a quarter mile west of us . the last one went back and forth across our viewing area east to west and back a couple of times before it left our site. I had to rush like a madman to get ready for work at this time as it was 10:30 at approx 10: 50 pm I got in my car backed out of my garage put my car in drive got about 50 feet down my alley, i felt and heard a loud rumbling, stopped my car stuck my head out of the window of my car to see the bottom of a large jet fighter going over my car -maybe 2 to3 hundred feet in the air above me it scrambled west over the bridge in the direction tha! t the lights went.
