Around 930pm, sept 17, 2019, i observed 3 fighter jets, what seemed to be, doing regular manuevers in the area. all of a sudden, i noticed a light in the area of the jets which i assumed to be a flare. however, the light didn't stream down as usual but became much brighter and was holding in a stationary pattern. as the jets came closer to the light, it became much brighter and then 4 more lights lite up and the v shape pattern of ights took off towards the east and veered to the ne as the 3 jets followed behind. the sighting was appoximately 3 to 4 minutes in duration.
