Northern Africa 1979 3 objects seen in the sky

I was standing duty as a Marine in Northern Africa back in 1979 and this will be the first time I have actually ever spoke of that incident. It was roughly 2AM and I was on patrol when I noticed a light in the sky which I thought was a falling star. As I stood there watching the object it turned in 3 objects moving in odd patterns at speeds that were not possible at that period of time. I stood there and watched in amazement as the the objects seperated and moved to different locations in the sky. the objects then formed what appeared to be a formation pattern then seperated again and flew unconventional patterns for approximately 2 minutes similar to someone moving a flash light around a dark room at simi rapid formations. Then as they just dissapeared in formation. This base was a high security communications station with several 360 foot towers within a five mile perimeter.

((NUFORC Note: Date in 1979 is approximate. We have assigned an artificial date so that the case sorts to 1979. PD))
