Dividing Lights Over Pensacola Beach

My family, girlfriend and I were in Pensacola, Fl, for spring break with some family friends. I had actually just had a conversation a few hours prior with our hosts about UFO sightings and prevalence in the area.

That night, my girlfriend and I were sitting on their deck enjoying a romantic evening when 5-6 lights appeared maybe 35 degrees above the horizon. At first I dismissed it thinking that it was just a group of air planes from the nearby military base, but as we watch the lights go higher in the sky they began to divide into smaller points of light and dramatically change direction.

By now we were curious, knowing that neither of us had seen anything move so quickly and precisely in the sky before. The lights came closer and closer and were just below cloud level when all of the darting points reconvened and assumed a linear shape. The lights were at an angle that made it impossible to tell for sure, but it looked almost like a bent line (chevron?) as it veered north.

What made it so peculiar and distinctively not an airplane was the in consistency of its movement and the way the lights divided themselves. I’ve never seen anything like it and must say that it was certainly one of the most eye opening experiences I’ve ever had.
