the second object appreared suddenly, then flickered out as the first object returned the way it had come.

I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. On Oct. 2, 2007 around 11:00 PM I was outside saying goodbye to a few friends. As they drove away I looked up at the night stars and noticed something strange.

There was what appeared at first to be an airplane flying east to west toward an area between Pikes Peak and Cheyenne Mountain. The object was flashing red and white lights and was flying in and unusual jerking manner. It may have been the irregually flashing lights that made it appear to be not flying straight.

A couple neighbors where out walking. I mentioned what I was watching and they stopped for about 5 mins. and also saw the object.

After watching for about 10 mins. the object moved more south toward Cheyenne Mt. It was over the mountains now. Then it disappeard for a quick second or two. When it reappeard there were two objects now flashing. They stayed together for only a couple mins.

The first (I think it was the first object) began heading back toward the east the same way it had come. The other object remained stationary above the mountain. The object above the mountain slowly "flickered out" over several minutes. The other object continued headed east. As it passed overhead I could make out the shape of the craft by the configuration of the lights. I could make out four distinct lights. It was triangular. After a few more minutes the object was no longer in my view.

It seemed like the second object became visible when the first object reached it's destination. I have seen similar objects with these kind of flickering lights over Colorado Springs previously. However, I have never seen one appear out of no where. They usually just fly a straight path until they're out of sight. This one had a purpose to it's flight.
