All of the above accounts were of round, bright white lights

After hearing you on coast2coast last night I was moved to make my UFO report since you said it's never too late.

I had several sightings the summer of 1999. Since I worked the graveyard shift, on my nights off I would lay in my hammock out side as not to disturb my sleeping children.

The 1st night I focused on two very bright stars for at least an hour when off to my right I saw what I thought was a bright satellite approaching those stars. Without changing speed as soon as it had made a perfect triangle with the two stars they began moving with the third object and continued on it's path. Same speed, perfect triangle across the sky until I lost sight of them. I was and still am baffled.

The following week I saw what I believe to be airplanes (since there was a small airport not far off) with their landing lights on coming over the tree tops on a hill about 5 miles away it came straight toward me from the west a couple more miles then made a sharp right turn toward the north. Something an airplane could not have done, also the so called landing lights were still facing me. I watch until it left my sight behind trees. Only seconds later another object on the same path,same size, same lights did the exact same thing followed by a third, fourth and so on. This went on for at least 45 minutes. I lost count of how many there were.

At my parents house 5 miles south of those sightings back when I was a teenager about 1969-70 in the summer time, on a bright clear day my mom called my dad and myself to the front porch and pointed to the north to a very large star (brightest I have ever seen) We watched it as it stayed in the same spot for about 15 minutes and we discussing NEVER seeing a star during the day let alone that bright. All of a sudden it shot straight up at an incredible rate and was gone. It was then we realized it was too close to be a star
