Light's in Triangle Fromation

I was working the second shift at Levis Strauss and was lunch time 8:00 pm MST. I noticed a group of people in the front side of the building looking towards the Western part of the sky over the Franklin Mountains and noticed 3 blinking lights in a triangle formation. I witneesed 1 of the lights move up and then go back down into the formation. Then they all moved in unison. The lights were there for roughly 20 min when fighter jets came from the southwest and the lights moved away in remarkable speed. As the jets passed by and left the lights came back in the same triangle formation. My wife stated the local news caught footage of this, and did identify them as UFO's. A day later they came back with the same story and apologized to the people for the misunderstanding of the report, and stated the military was conducting weather experiments. I would like to know if anyone else witnessed this. Thank you..
