Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Three red objects in the form of a red triangle. Each point was red with a hazy red ring around each one. Not sure if these three red points were individual objects or the outer points of a larger one. They moved very fast and erratic but the space between them was constant. No sound was heard.
Size of Object(s)
If they were outer points of a large object I would say it was bigger than a 747. If they were individual objects I would say 30-40ft diameter each.
Description of Area / Surroundings
I live in the city of Gonzales which is a small town of 7200 people. I live two blocks from downtown so I have plenty of city light haze.
Full Description & Details
After working on a couple of websites late last night I went outside the house to turn on the automatic sprinklers as I usually run them at night. I looked up and noticed three red objects in a perfect triangle shape moving at a brisk speed. The objects were solid red (no blinking lights) in a triangle shape (there wasn't any attachments or points that would indicate there's lights were part of one object. The three "points" were moving with great speed and would make 90 degree turns then proceed forward then turn again. There were no sounds coming from the objects so if you didn't happen to look up you wouldn't of even noticed them. For about 10 seconds I followed them till a tree obstructed the view. I ran to the front of the house where we have a clearing and watched them till they disappeared. They appeared to be traveling South West towards Nixon, TX but obviously I cannot say 100% sure with their previous flight pattern and by then they were out of site. I live in town so there's plenty "City light" so hopefully someone that lives out in the rural areas saw something.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No, the object(s) were moving in perfect sync at a high rate of speed with perfect 90 degree turns and no sound.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I've seen two UFO's in my 30 years on Earth. The older I'am getting the more I figured it was the government or top secret program vs. aliens specifically but this sighting has made me think twice. First how are speeds and flight patterns like I witnessed man made, second why fly over some small country town? Looks like it would be a waste of resources if it was Government.
My last UFO sighting was in Dallas, TX about 8 years ago. A group of four of us pulled up to my apartment and noticed a very odd looking object in the sky. It was flying extremely low and unusually slow. It was quite intimidating. It was a solid black object, triangular shaped, and was what I would say large. Another strange thing is that this was at night too...around 10PM. It was almost like the object didn't want to be seen. No sound, no lights, no anything. You may ask "How did you notice it if you were in the city, it was night, the object was black with no lights?" City lights! As anyone knows that lives in the city, if you look up you see city lights that give the sky an almost hazy look. Well this object stood out because it was a slow moving, large object that was solid black. So when you have a hazy sky with a large solid black object moving it gets your attention. My reaction was nervous, and not excited for sure as it was very intimidating.
