Im not sure of the exact date it happened, but it was this summer and the space shuttle came back from space the next day. I had just come home from work and I stepped outside onto my porch along with my husband and a friend around 10:30 PM. I immediately saw a very bright streak of white light travel across the sky and i thought that i had seen a shooting star, so i kept on looking for another one and then I saw one that only went a very short distance and it was very bright..I then started to think something was going on and then my husband spotted what appeared to be a star moving very quickly and jumping across the sky it swirled around in circles very fast and then dissapeared behind what looked like a normal star. Shortly afterwards, we began to see bright streaks of light zoom across the sky periodically and then what we thought were stars in the sky began moving around and coming closer (about airplane level) they were moving in very odd jumpy patterns and each of them had a bright red light. There were about 5 or 6 of them that we could see and they seemed to be playing with eachother. Then suddenly they started following eachother and they were all flashing bright lights in the shape of a triangle and the light started at the top and flashed down to the bottom of the triangle like christmas lights and they were green, purple, blue, red,and orange. They continued to play with eachother and they would periodically stop and hover, when they hovered they looked like nothing more than a normal star until they moved again. I witnessed one of them pass over the highway and when it did, all of its lights turned off. My friend did manage to snap some pictures of what we saw, I dont think that she has gotten them developed yet. The "show" finally ended around 1:00am. Also, when I woke up the next morning, i went to my computer and there was a warning message on it saying that the computer had not been able to shut down that night because other people were logged onto it at that time (we did not have the internet so i dont know how this was possible) I have never been a beleiver, but the things i witnessed that night have definately altered my perception of things. I would also like to bring to your attention that the space shuttle came back to earth unplanned the following day and I think that what I witnessed very well could have had something to do with it....just a theory.
