Shape: Triangle
Duration:40 seconds
5 orange lights in a V shape in the sky moving slowly south for 40 seconds then it sped up & disappeared.

We walked outside at about 9:15 pm on August 29th 2009 and looked up and noticed 5 lights in a V shape moving slowly south. We watched for about 40 seconds trying to figure out what it was when suddenly it sped up and disappeared out of site. Whatever it was made no noise whatsoever.We are used to a lot of airline traffic overhead and helicopters coming and going from the local hospital but if there is no sound the aircraft is very high and the lights very small and this seemed low enough we should have heard it.

A day later someone reported in the local newspaper that they saw an orange flame in the sky. She was directly south-southeast of us by a few blocks. I imagine what she was seeing was the craft when it sped up and it became a blur before it disppeared.

Is there a military craft with lights like this that makes no noise? One that can also move slowly and then take off at warp speed?
