Three UFOs in formation seen by many on the night of July 4, 2008 in Chester, WV.

---My name is XXXX XXXXXX and I'm from a small town called Chester in Northern West Virginia. On the Fourth of July (2008) my town was having it's usual festivities as we always do when out of no where three bright red lights appeared in the sky. They appeared to be in a triangle formation and moved together in a very slow, very creepy "floating" motion. At my house more than thirty of my family members, anywhere from age 5 to 83, all saw exactly what I saw. There was a concert in town and the city was probably host to around ten-thousand people or more, most of which saw the lights. I have attached three photos that my aunt took from a different point in town, and I have two poor quality videos on my cell phone that I can send once I figure out how to upload them.

When I saw the lights it was approximately 10:50pm. I filmed two quick videos and took off in the direction of the lights. I eventually lost sight of them but I have friends who were in different parts of the town who claim two of the lights moved in very close as if they were being sucked up into the sky, and the third followed. I originally thought there was only one craft due to the steady formation but now that I have seen many photos and talked to a lot of different eye-witnesses I believe we saw three seperate crafts.

No newspapers or stations have reported anything on these lights, and I as well as many others are frustrated by this silence. We would love to be able to shed light on this.
