22 orange-yellow UFOs, flying low, fast and silently east to south over Texas A&M University 4 randomly moving followed by 18 in a line

December 12, Sunday 2004, 10:15 CST.

My husband and I stepped out for a cigarette and he drew my attention to a formation of 4 objects moving rapidly and silently across the sky over the east side of our building, moving south. The objects appeared in a diamond formation and at first glance I thought it might have been a large aircraft moving sideways. The objects then began to circle randomly around each other (2 objects rotated clockwise while 2 others rotated alternate directions around the these) while maintaining course and speed south. They moved at a steady speed from the time that we saw them from the time they disappeared over the trees on the south side of our complex.

45 seconds to a minute later, while moving around to the other side of our complex, we saw a line of 18 objects in a half V formation, in the same direction (South) as the previous 4. The objects looked identical in shape, color, and speed as the first 4, but they remained in formation until out of sight well over the far side of the Texas A&M University campus, which we can see from our parking lot. Again, they flew anywhere from a few hundred to a thousand feet above the ground, with absolutely no noise. They flew faster than birds and as fast if not faster than a jet airplane. The objects were in a very very tight formation [nearly touching each other].
