Static UFO deploying multiple UFO 'Scouts'?

This was very odd. My family and I were shopping in Gravois Bluffs (Feton,MO) and on our way home (about 6:30PM) we noticed in the sky many blinking lights in small groups in static formation (i.e. series of 3-5 lights in one area, not moving, but multiple groups). As I watched these groups of blinking lights I then noticed lights deploying from those area one at a time. Once deployed from those areas, they then took flight and then looked like normal airplanes at night (white/red lights). The 5 or 6 deployed "planes" scattered and seemed to 'scout' the Fenton and Arnold areas. When I arrived home (Arnold, MO), we still saw the "planes" flying around. Then one came flying over our house fairly low. This is when I started to get a little scared. The plane was low enough to see the formation of the red/white lights. The craft had 3 white lights in a triangular formation with a flashing red light in the center. There was no tail light. It sounded li! ke a prop plane but for as low as it was, it should have been much louder. After it passed over I then noticed another craft (same with white/red lights) hovering further south and at a much higher altitude. . but it was not moving. It remained stationary. After seeing all this, I started to feel very uncomfortable, and then went inside pretending I saw nothing. Then, at about 1:00AM, I heard the loudest most annoying humming droning sound ever (as if 'something' very large was hovering nearby. The hum echoed through the town and I never saw anything. . . but the noise was very clear. Needless to say, I did not get much sleep last night. If I see something activity again tonight, I'll have my phone ready to take pics. Have there been any similar reports?
