Shape: Formation
Duration:30 minutes
B/t border ot TX & Mex; five indep lights in a triangle pat traveling in SE direction would stop & hover.vanish over Gulf.

Hot summer nights,deserted fields between south TX and Mexico always at sunset around 8:30pm to 9:15pm ~ on my way back from work. I have seen these white lights on many occassions (maybe 4 or 6 times), I never reported them for fear of being called silly. The white lights would always take the same pattern; a triangle shape~five white lights total. The lights would change colors from light blue, then light orange then back to a white light but they would always stay in their pattern. The lights would hoover in the distance over a field, in a very isolated area between the two countries. This area where the lights hoover, no one travels into, not even the border patrol~it's just too isolated; not even cell phones work out here. The lights would hoover for minutes then as they speed off, two lights would go off north, two would go off south and the lead light would go east (S/E)~this is way I say it's a formation of five lights. My last sighting, this eveni! ng, my son's flash light and binoculors where in the back seat of my vehicle. I used the binoculars to get a closer look at them, at the same time I used the flash light to signal them. As I focused on the lights (crafts) I could sense they were looking back; I flashed the flash light to get their attention and one of the lights(craft) flickered its light back. At first, I refused to believe they were focusing back at me or signaling me with thier lights. I continued to focused with the binoculars but the next time I flashed the flash light,I came up with a particular pattern; three long flash, followed by two short flashed, then one long flash and then one short flash. However, this time all five lights (crafts) flashed their lights at the exact time and in the same pattern! Now, my self preservation heighten I no longer wanted to play with the lights (crafts)so I put the flast light back in the back seat, but I continue to look with the binoculars at the lights ~ but! longer I looked the stronger the feeling I got (they were loo! king bac k),till it became overwhelming and I put the binoculars down! I must have looked at the white lights (crafts)maybe 2-3 minutes; during this time frame ~ the five lights (crafts) flickered their lights back to me twice in the same pattern I made up. When I looked up without the aid of my binoculars the lights were gone, I didn't see them fly off like I normally seen them and this freaked me out. Even though I couldn' see the light(crafts), I sense they were still around. I didn't want to stick around to find out. On my way home, I stopped at HEB and went shopping, then I stopped at an ice house to buy a beer, went the long way home ~ I guess to throw them off (right!). About a mile or so from my house, my son's flash light starting blinking(flashing)!! I really would have chalked it up as being nothing, but the flashing light pattern was the one I made up for those crafts in the sky. Of course, I through out the flash light and the binoculars, I bought my son some other! ones. I pulled up to my house, about 10 minutes later, stepped out of my pick-up and looked up into the night sky to see a beautiful Texas' starry night. I took a second look into the night, just before I stepped into my house; I saw a triangle pattern of no stars over my house maybe the size of a football field, my front door closed. I immediately open my door again to take a third look but the dark triangle silohuet was gone, the stars were back. I just wanted to tell you my story, you know~just in case. I have not been out there since this incident, I have been taking my wife's car to work and taking another route home, but I am willing to make another trip out there to take pictures, video and sound track if it would help? Just do not mention my name. You can email, but I will not talk or see anyone. Andromeda
