To whom it may concern,

On Thursday evening, at about 10:10 pm, on April 10, 2014, I was a witness to an Unidentified Flying Object. I was in the front yard of my house and saw movement in the sky toward the north of my house. I observed 5 glowing yellow lights (almost like a flame, but not flickering) in a rectangular like formation.

I immediately ran into my house and told my wife and 2 daughters that were home to come outside to look at the lights. We all went out our back door of the house and I pointed to the area of the lights. They all saw the same thing I saw, but it looked as if the lights began traveling northbound slowly. One of the 5 lights looked as if it merger into one of the other lights.

There were no sounds coming from the lights or anywhere else-other than the sound of neighbors talking (the sound travels in my backyard at night).

At one point, I saw what looked like flashing lights of a small aircraft (green and red flashing light) was traveling from the east to west in a path going toward the lights. As the flashing lights reached the far right side of the lights, the flashing lights disappeared. The flashing red & green aircraft lights didn't change direction, didn't turn- they just disappeared.

My wife ran back into the house to grab a camera to see if it would show up in a picture, so she thought to quickly grab her iPad mini. She took several pictures, of which a couple clearly showed the lights of the object.

After about 4-5 minutes, the lights appeared to continue traveling in a northern direction, then disappeared. They object didn't make any sounds, but the lights just disappeared within a few seconds.

We've not contacted anyone,or,organization about what we saw, other than a few friends at church who thought we were crazy. I even sent an email to a doctor friend of mine who is a novice astronomer.

I am a retired police officer, former Air Force Sergeant, who has never before seen anything like what we saw than night. While I do believe in UFO's, I've never before seen anything that I would consider "Unidentified". No one in my family consumes alcohol or recreational drugs.

Please let me know if you would like any additional information or have any questions.

Sincerely, XXXXX
