As I was working on patrol I looked up at the clear night sky and notice a V-shape formation above me.

I am a law enforcement official and on april 18th, 2010 as I was working on patrol at approximately 0120 hrs.I was parked facing a south direction approximately 300 feet from Gst on Community Dr. (This is in the area of Merced College the College parking area lights were all off)

I then got off my vehicle and looked up at the clear sky, as I looked up in a north/east direction above me I notice a white V-shape formation approximately 100 yards width moving slow in a north/east direction. The V-shape formation had no sound to it. Then the V-shape formation broke up and got in to three smaller formations, with three objects in each formation. Each formation was now shape in a triangle formation. Two of the formation got closer together still heading in the same direction and the formation closer to me separated and headed north. The size of each object in the formation was the size of a small compact vehicle the object's were white in color with a haze's around them. As I staired at the formations for approximately 30 sec. They took off at a high rate of speed in their direction of travel.

I then got back into my vehicle and left the area heading north on Gst. to see if i could see the formation again. I got to the intersection of Gst and bellevue and headed east on bellevue and parked off the side of the road approximately 200 yards from Gst.

This area is in the county of Merced, CA, and is surrounded by fields and their is really no lights out in this area where I stopped.

The formation never came back over me.
