|Lights in formation over South Broken Arrow, Ok
At about 9:30pm, my wife, myself, and my neighbor who is a police officer for the district attorney's office were sitting in our garage talking. My wife was sitting facing northwest and made a comment about something moving fast in the sky.
I turned to look, and what we first saw was a bright white light approaching from northwest to southeast. As it got closer it appeared to get brighter. I did not observe any flashing red or green lights, or white strobes, no engine or rotor noise, so I thought maybe a low orbit satellite.
As it flew more directly overhead, the light seemed to fade and then disappear, still traveling southeast. As I was looking at that object, my wife and neighbor pointed out another object behind it traveling the same height and direction. What made the second object different is, as it approached, one light turned to two.
Then three in a triangle shape. Then, 4 lights, till it was overhead and you could see 6 lights arranged in ! a hexagon shape. At this point I had grown into more disbelief because once again, no engine noise, no rotor sound, no strobes or red and green lights. We have planes and helicopters that fly over regularly, and all of those aircraft are unmistakably what they appear.
These two objects were traveling too fast for that.
I noticed my neighbors across the street were sitting in their garage with a group of 4 or 5 other people and I had to point this out to them. We all were watching as the six lights kept traveling together in a hexagon formation and eventually faded out as it continued traveling southeast.
Most airplanes as they pass over their strobes and lights are still visible for several miles. These objects were not like that. Probably more directed in front and straight down or maybe they just faded off as it went overhead and on. I have never seen lights arranged in a hexagon formation on any aircraft I have ever seen and I used to work on aircraft years ago ! so I am familiar with how aircraft lighting is. Whatever it w! as, it w as not civilian or commercial. I will point out my neighbor police officer is also ex military and he was as perplexed as I was. I waited to report this because I thought surely this could have a reasonable explanation but the more I kept thinking about it, the more I couldn't ignore what I saw.
