Shape: Cigar
Duration:1-2 minutes

My name is ((name deleted)). My birthday party was happening and me and my friends were hanging around and shooting the basketball in my front yard. We shot the ball for about 10 to 15 minutes when there was this giant flash of light in the air.

At first all of us were blinded by the light, when we got our sight back there were 3 crafts flying very fast and very low to the ground. We could barely make out the shapes of the vehicles before they were out of sight, all we saw were 3 very fast, cigar shaped crafts flying very close to the ground. The light that was coming off the vehicle woke up a lot of neighbors and blurred our vision. The power in our house and all of the houses around us flickered for about 2 minutes before it finally turned back on. None of our car engines would turn on for at least 10 minutes.

Everyone was stunned and shocked at what just happened because it has never happened to anyone of us before.

I can honestly say that this was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed before in my life.

Hopefully you can explain to me and my friends what we saw exactly.
