Over the hill to the North there were weird looking strobing lights....

Phase #1: I was sitting on the living room sofa, which faced me to the NW, looking out a double window. There is a high hill directly behind the house. I saw a glow at the tree line, the tops of the trees lit up. Then a line of lights in a row, rose in an arc, maybe 9 or 10 of them. They were orange, bright orange with a steady glow, not pulsating. They were bigger than Venus and brighter. Maybe like hand-held spot lights. They illuminated the tree line. Moving not too rapid. Moving from left to right. The formation slowly reveled itself. Looked like something big in that direction. It looked like the leading edge of a solid object, with more hidden down below. I thought, "I’ve got time (to get to the back door)" and jumped up and ran to the back door. By the time I got out there, they had slid down below the hill. I could still see a glow. At the top of the hill, the glow dissipated. I called my wife, but by the time she got there they were gone.

Phase#2: My wife and I saw this. Over the hill to the North there were weird looking strobing lights. They were white. I saw at least three, and they were set to form triangles in groups of three. Three with three lights each. These were a little dimmer than the string of lights. A real fast strobe, a series of fast flickers, then nothing, then fast flickers, then nothing. They all strobed at the same time. The size of the clusters, each triangle of three lights was maybe like a quarter held at arm’s length. Larger than a dime. A friend told me he saw jet fighters come up from the South, slightly before 6:30. They were in formation, flying fast.
