Two flying, spiraling white lights disappear into the night, Wichita Falls, Texas

My friend and I were walking down Southwest Parkway near Rosemont Cemetery. I was star-gazing when I saw what at first appeared to be a helicopter flying through the sky. I believed it to be a helicopter because the UFO was composed of white lights angled downward like a helicopter with it's nose slightly tipped as if it were flying forward instead of up.

Additionally, it was seemingly flying at an altitude typical of helicopters.

At this point in time I point out the object to my friend who also began to observe it. The object moved through the sky at a steady and quick pace and moved in the same direction throughout the sighting.

After roughly ten seconds of observation, the lights began to spiral around each other while still moving in the same direction as earlier.

The lights moved closer together and spread apart, and I realized that if the UFO was a helicopter, it would've been out of control and it would not have been possible for it to maintain its altitude, speed, and direction.

After roughly thirty seconds more of confused observation, the lights spread out from each other, farther than they had before, and faded into the night sky.
