Low flying, silent, muted white lights on a chevron shaped glider

2 adults and 1 8 year old girl were walking on a bikepath in Boulder, CO, coming home from dinner. I spotted a swift, silent, glider-ike object flowing through the air at a very low altitude (less than 2000 feet). It had 5 'lights' on it, in a zig-zag shape arrangment. The lights were not spotlights, typical airplane lights, nor were they flashing. They had a muted glowing quality, almost like a white/yellow glow in the dark look. The 5 lights, I assumed at first were all on the same craft, but the far two lights wavered and moved closer together and then assumed the original shape again as it glided out of our sight. It was very low and very large, a fist across when held at arms length. We walked on, in amazement talking to each other and a voice on the path said, "Did you guys see that?"--our neighbor Alec had seen it too and he had planted his self down in the middle of the bike path. He had noticed it when he said the 5 or 6 lights were seperate and only after they had moved apart and then converged did they take on the glider like/chevron shape when we had spotted it.

The reason I am reporting this is not only my interest and excitment for UFO's but also that I saw the same thing less than a year ago, I was also in Boulder.

I called the Boulder Municipal Airport the following morning askng if their were gliders up in Boulder County that previous nights, the man informed me that all gliders are grounded prior to sunset. I am very interested to see if anyone else saw what we did and what the theories are? I have a science background and consider myself an observant, relatively sane thinker. This object was not a typical aircraft. Most notably the craft was silent.
