Three Silent Lights Spotted in Fairhaven, MA

My family and I were sitting outside watching fireworks from our deck when we spotted three lights flying over New Bedford, which is due west of our house. At first, we assumed they were commercial or private aircraft, but it became quickly clear they were not.

The lights, flying in a triangle at perfect synchrony, moved directly towards us. As the lights moved to within a close distance of our home, it was impossible to see anything OTHER than a light - i.e. we did not notice the outline of any object, even though it appeared as though the aircraft were each flying fairly low to the ground.

The other odd thing was they were flying in ABSOLUTE silence. No engine noise, no propeller noise, NOTHING.

Things became especially odd when the "middle" light seemed to "fade" out into nothingness despite nearly no cloud cover during the evening.

Quickly thereafter, the front "light" faded out in a similar fashion while the other light continued to move over our house in an easterly direction. Very odd.

Only thoughts could be they were military aircraft flying towards Otis Air National Guard Base on Cape Cod, which is only about 20 miles away from our house.
