12 Silent Craft Over South Travis Co., TX

My neighbor called me at 20:59 to say there were a number of craft flying overhead, making no sound. I rushed outside to the front of my house, and only witnessed two of the craft. For less than 30 seconds, I saw one each of a set of red, blue, and green blinking lights on each craft arranged in a triangle shape. They were flying to the east of my house on a North or NW path. I did not hear any engine sounds. They may have been about three miles away and 1000 feet or higher.

I ran back inside my house and told my wife about the craft, and we ran into the backyard in time to see the two crafts pass further to the north in about twenty seconds, when they passed out of sight into the light cloud covering. My wife only witnessed the two craft from the back just before they disappeared. She could only discern the red lights. She did not hear any engine sounds either, but she said if they were normal, identifiable craft, she might not have heard any sounds anyway from that distance..

I spoke to my neighbor again and that is when he confirmed that he and his wife had estimated about a dozen ships flying to the east of his house. His house is about one block from our house. The craft never flew directly over our houses but may have moved near our area as if they came from the airport to the east of us. The direction they were headed after we last saw them, if they stayed on that path, would have taken them directly over the city.

We did not get to take any video or images.

Just as the crafts dissapeared from sight, some type of passenger sized plane flew directly over our house from east to west. It appeared about 2000 feet higher than the other craft.
