Shape: Formation
Duration:5-10 minutes
Oddly shaped craft and 7 red lights

Me and my boyfriend were sitting outside, just like we do every night. I had already witnessed the same white dim light moving extremely slow at about 95°, only this time there were 3. Seconds later as usual it just disappeared. Moves much slower than a meteor. About 25 mins later a craft flew above our heads, was very quiet didn't move like an airplane or have same blinking lights as a typical one, was shaped differently too. Seemed almost to stop at times. We assumed it was a drone as it moved to the South. I then noticed a faint red light and as I pointed it out to my boyfriend, we noticed them light up all over the SE sky. They were zig zagged in flight path and a few of them were so close together at times it was unreal, they seemed to just be flying all around, stayed in same position of sky for a few minutes! We counted approximately 7 of the red lights (which would blink white so often).

All the sudden they split up and went different directions dis! appearing as fast as they appeared. About 15 -20 seconds later 2 airplanes, I believe, Criss-crossed over us from opposite directions. One from SW and one from NE.
