Shape: Chevron
Duration:15 minutes
Two chevron shaped objects, one with white lights one with red lights, could stand still and could move quickly with no sound

We were watching a fireworks display when I noticed a white line high above the fireworks.

At first I thought it was an ember from the show. But it never burned out. It was moving slowly in the sky. Then it stopped. Shortly after it stopped, another line appeared in the sky, but this one had red lights. It also stopped, but began to go to the right across the sky at a quick pace and then it stopped. Then it moved back to the left and stopped. It was almost as if they were watching the fireworks display because when the show was over they left the area going toward the west.

I focused mainly on the red one because of its color. It looked like a boomerang shape with a brighter center light. The other lights were also red, but dimmer. It made no sound and when it moved, it moved quickly. Because they could stand still in the sky, I knew they couldn't be airplanes.

We were facing west. They seemed to appear out of nowhere but hung around for about 15 minutes. The red one moved around more than the white one did. They both did stop and remain in one place for a while. When the fireworks were over I saw the red one leave the area going west. I did not notice when the white one left. They were silent.
