Location: Longview, TX
Shape: Triangle
Duration:45 minutes
I had gone out on my pool patio with a glass of ice tea to relax, while my family watched football. As soon as I sat down in my longue chair, I looked up and thought a saw a triangular light very high in the sky. It was way above the clouds but looked very large. I looked away and rubbed my eyes and looked up again and the three lights remained.

As a scale, I’m going to say there were about a 1/4” between each separate light.

I got up and went inside to get my 24 year old son. I asked him to look up and tell me what he saw. He said a triangle.

While observing it, it appeared to split and became two separate triangles.

The first one stayed where it was while the second traveled to the south west.

We lost sight of the second one as clouds got in the way. But the first one remained there for another 20 minutes. It was there when I went back inside. When I went back outside about 30 minutes later and it was gone.

I plan on checking again tonight.

I heard there were also sightings in Dallas, Texas, Lawton, Ok., and Mississippi, yesterday and last night. Just FYI.
