|Just a fairly quick fly by from some craft Ive never seen before.
I was at a friends house over night just hanging out and we stayed up all night. My friend was playing a video game and I stepped out side in the back yard to catch the breeze. He has a picnic table so I lied down and looked up for a few minutes, saw a shooting star and kept looking up. At 3:23 a.m. I noticed 5 dim non blinking yellow lights in a pattern moving over the top of a tree headed due south toward downtown. They were arranged in a V pattern and I could see the black out line of the craft barely against the black sky. It made no noise, just cruised almost directly over me for about 20 seconds, then I lost sight of it when it flew behind a tree and into the light coming from the downtown area. Dyess AFB is just a few miles away and I stay up every night so I know this was no airplane, we see those all the time. It made no noise and traveled about as fast as the little planes at Abilene Regional Airport, just casually cruising by. Thats about it.
