Several hovering lights seen moving in strange formations and directions.

While taking a walk around Mt. Olivet Cemetery, at the intersection of 58th Road and Brown Place, my boyfriend and I spotted 4 strange white lights in the sky that were moving around in unnatural directions and formations. The lights would go in and out of view, and as we were watching and attempting to identify them, we kept spotting more. Up to seven appeared in the sky at the same time, all hovering around each other in formations, while not seeming to be moving in any one particular predetermined direction. The lights blinked as they moved, in some of the photos we gathered they seemed to be circular, while in others they seemed to have a triangle shape, though they were too unnaturally high up in the air for the camera to capture the shape definitively. We called a friend of mine who was driving in the area, to see if she had seen anything; she also spotted these lights and described them in the same way. Twice we saw one of the white lights briefly blink to the color red before disappearing. There were airplanes that we also saw passing through the same vicinity, but much further down in the sky.
