Shape: Formation
Duration:5-7 seconds
Saw four circular lights flying quickly in formation and then change formation, there was no sound, helipcopters circled around shortly

I was standing in my backyard at approximately 1pm in the morning having a smoke and letting the dogs relieve themselves. I looked in the sky to see four circular lights flying in a square :: formation. At first I figured it was an airplane until it registered how fast they were going and that there was no noise whatesoever. I then saw them change formation into what appeared was going to be a V shape formation, but then changed into a diagonal line (from my perspective at least) like so .... but diagonally from left to right.

The color of the lights were white/yellowish with a hint of light blue, but were behind a thin layer of clouding so I can't be sure the exact color. I'm sure it wasn't a commercial aircraft because of how fast it was moving and the fact that the lights moved from their original formation. I can't rule out that they could have been military craft, however the following is what leads me to believe they are not. (or at least what military craft are available knowledge to the public.)

1. They made no noise whatsoever. Not even after they were gone. There was no trailing engine noise.

2. The speed and seemingly effortless way they manuevered into another formation. They changed direction faster and more fluently then military aircraft would be able to handle. As I said earlier, they went from :: to V to a diaganol line .... in a matter of about 5 seconds.

3. The fact that they were just lights... just a circular light. No flashing, no additional lights, just a solid circle of light.

4. Under a minute later some helicoptors could be heard in the vacinity.. Tho as to whether or not they were there for the spectacle is beside me. If they were, there would be no way they could have matched the UFOs speed.

So that is my sighting. I personally am convinced they were not commecial or military aircraft. If the goverment has some black project for new craft and propulsion systems, that is another story.
