Objects in the sky and planes flying around them.

On June 6, 2008 I was walking home around 11:00pm. I noticed several airplanes flying around. Airplanes are very common in this area but what caught my attention was the number of them. You usually see only one or two but never in the same area. What made me curious was particular groups of these aircraft with red and green flashing lights appearing to be flying in formation in groups of threes. I also noticed Several larger aircraft with the same red and green lights and two larger white lights in the back as they flew over me at very high speeds. These planes were obviously not UFO’s but while I was observing these planes I noticed a star like object hovering much lower than the other planes and traveling at a faster speed. Occasionally the object would slow down a bit and appeared to wobble in a short circle and speed back up again. I observed this object for about ten minutes until it disappeared behind some trees. I then made several phone calls to friends in the area telling them what I saw.

I proceeded to walk home when I noticed several more star like objects move higher in the sky. I then noticed one of the larger planes flying towards one of them at a high speed. The object then appeared to fly much higher in the sky until I couldn’t see it. I then saw a short white streak across the sky moving extremely fast and disappeared. I continued to observe several more of these objects and more airplanes circling in the same area.

I got home and woke up my father who came outside and witnessed the same events. I also contacted a neighbor who also witnessed several of the objects streaking across the sky. Several of my friends saw the planes flying around in the circular pattern but did not see the star like objects. Everyone who witnessed where kind of concerned and frightened at the events taking place. After a while I couldn’t see any more objects but the planes continued to circle the area. I hope that this small group of people were not the only ones to witness these events. We tried to film the objects and planes on a cell phone camera but couldn’t see them in the night sky.
