I saw the phoenix lights over ft.collins colorado

-on march 20 at aprox. 8:45pm Me and a friend, were standing between two buildings in a fairly lit part of town. the buildings blocked out most of the city light so i could see the night sky fairly well. We saw a chevron shaped (that's v shaped) object moving slowly across the sky. It was about two or three inches across in my visual spectrum and seemed to be very high, at least 10,000 ft if not more. it looked like 7 dim lights in a v formation with one more in the center. the lights were just bright enough to see but not bright enough to really catch your attention. i just happened to catch the movement. It was so big that I'm sure it was not a jet, and it was completely silent. it seemed to be leaving a wake of light trails behind it that resembled heat inversion or the waviness you see when pumping gas on a hot day. it moved very slow as if it were "floating" rather than flying. one of my girlfriends co-workers saw the same thing from across town so I can safely say that my friend and I were not just "seeing things". it looked exactly like the "phoenix lights" phenomena that was witnessed in colorado springs and arizona in 1997.
