    At about 11:45 PM CDT tonight my son alerted me to come running outside. I 
    looked straight up and saw three orange circular spots with a yellow center 
    maybe/20th of a moon diameter in size. They had a magnitude typical of 
    Jupiter. They were set apart in an equilateral triangle, about the distance 
    of four spread fingers held at one arm length. They were moving from west to 
    east at about the speed of high flying jets. There -was- a faint jet sound.
    Obviously they were aircraft but were lit up, all over, like Christmas trees 
    ornaments! Nothing like I have ever seen before. If anyone else saw them I 
    would sure like to read about it. I ran back into the house to grab my 
    binocs and video camera so I missed most of the show. They were visible till 
    about 25 degrees up in the east at which point I think they went behind 
    clouds and their sound quit.
