dim lights moving in u shaped formation over Roswell

I was letting the dog outside for the night, and was sitting on the ground looking up at the stars, when six 'lights' in a u-shaped formation moved overhead. They were much dimmer than the stars, seemed to look 'faded' almost, and did not blink. They moved overhead without any sound, heading toward the west and then arching to the south-west/south, like they were heading toward White Sands. The formation did *not* block out any of the stars as it moved, and at the apex of the semi-circular 'turn', the objects seemed to 'twist' in on themselves, before regaining the formation. They moved quickly and fluidly through the sky, it took less than ten seconds for them to disappear over the horizon to the south. There was still no sound, even after it was gone, and I could hear one car go by on the street we live on. There was nothing 'chasing' the object, either. I quickly called the dog in and locked the doors (not that THAT would help?). I'm not sure what it was, but I really wish I'd never seen it. Maybe someone else saw it, so that I don't think I'm losing my eyesight or something. If so, then you have my permission to post this report or use it as you want to. You can not contact me, since I don't want to be associated with this sort of thing and we are moving out of the state in less than a week...and right now? I couldn't be happier about that fact, actually.
