50 plus fast moving objects in the sky over Charleston WV

My son and his girlfriend was on their way home from Dunbar, WV, last night, and when they entered downtown Charleston on I-77 at around 2 something a.m., his girlfriend, ((girl's name deleted)), noticed a couple of lights up in the sky, and she told me that one of them was going pretty fast in one direction, and instantaneously it went into an opposite direction and did some zig zags in the sky. Along their way home she continued watching them, and about 15-20 minutes later when they arrived home in Sissonville, WV, they came straight up to our home and they said, dad, you’ve got to come outside and see this, and I said, why, and my son said, just come outside. I said, ok what the heck! So, I went outside on my front porch and said, now, what is it that you want me to see? They said, come out into the yard. So, curious as hell as I was, I walked down int the front of my house and started gazing into the shy. I saw nothing, and then we walked back a few more feet in the fron! t of my house and then,they said look, look straight up and I did. At first I didn’t see anything, probably because my eyes wasn’t focused yet. And then, I saw a light, then 2 light, and then 3. All 3 were in a triangular formation. And then they said, dad, look there are more. I looked, and yes I seen more coming behind the first three again in some form of a triangle. I thought, DAMN, WTF???!!!! WHATTHE HELL??!! We continued watching and here came about 3 or 4 more, and then a few more, and a few more, we again continued watching, and they just kept coming. The direction was coming from North West to West in an orderly fashion. It definitely was not a meteor or stars because they continued on in formation and faster than a jet. I live about 12-15 miles from the Charleston, WV, Yeager airport on a mountain and I see jets all day long, but never have I seen more than 3 or 4 in the sky at the same time. Well, we kept on watching, and they kept on coming. All heading from NW TO W direction. By the time I seen the last one, there must hav! e been 5 0 or more. After I seen the last one, I went in to our home and tuned in to ALL of the News stations, thinking that there may be some kind of a terrorist attack or whatever. So, I checked each and every outlet that I could, even local, but NOTHING. Called my oldest brother Danny, and told him about it and then he told my other brother about it, and about a half hour later they group face timed me and wanted to know all about it. Well, I told them exactly what I just typed, and they were like, WOW!!! They said, you might want to report this to MUFON or to you, I said, they aren’t going to take it seriously. But, they continued to harp on it that I should atleast report it. So, I am, and if you’d be interested in checking this situation out here in Charleston, WV out, than do as you may. I’d be very interested in ANYTHING that you would possibly find out about it! I don’t have a cell phone right now that is active, but if you’d like to reach me, then you can call my brother !
