Location: Aurora, CO
|5 to 7 white triangles observed flying in formation.
The day was a typical post blizzard, beautiful clear, Colorado day. I had just pulled into the driveway of my parents' home to visit. I heard the engines of fighter jets above which drew my attention to the sky. Now jets overhead is a daily occurrence with Buckley Air Force Base minutes away. I have become a custom to seeing things in the sky having grown up in Aurora, by the AFB.
At the age of 42, I have come to relize that as young teenager along with a neighbor friend, we witnessed a black triangle almost some 30 years ago. I digress, back to the recent sighting.
As I was looking for the jets, I noticed a formation of about 5 to 7 white triangles moving south to north over the AFB, but at very high altitude. To me it did not seem as though the jets were after these objects, but obviously I do not know that for sure.
I observed these triangles for about 20 to 30 seconds as they moved across the sky in formation. In my mind, I can rule out geese or seagulls as, these objects moved in a tight formation. One triangle that was on the left of the formation did break from the rest, drop to the rear only to rejoin the formation again on the right side. It was not long after that I lost sight of the objects.
Again, I know what birds in flock look like and this was not that.
