I'll post more in a sec but if you are in the area they are travelling WSW from my perspective in Joplin, MO. There is an extremely powerful jet rumble associated with it. 2 escorts have FAA lights, but 3 UFOs look like inside illuminated boxes through binoculars.

ETA:
OK, wanted to get that up as quickly as possible, people in Oklahoma should be able to see them by now.

ETA:
Ok, now for more detail. I'm visiting family in Missouri, and Mom asked me to step outside and see a UFO. The sun set about an hour ago, and what she pointed out to me was a slow moving, bright star in the South. I figured it was probably a reflection off a satellite, and it disappeared after about 10 minutes. It was moving due East, but it was unremarkable. While watching it, with the binoculars, I happened to see some flashing FAA lights in the North East and when I zoomed in on them another set zoomed across the frame. It was a little frightening, so I stopped and looked with the naked eye, and there was a section of sky kind of ablaze with activity. Once I got some perspective on it, there were 3 sets of FAA lights that seemed to be jets, they went NNW, and then one circled back and headed out of sight in the opposite direction, while the two others took up positions flanking some large lights that were not flashing. Those lights seemed to turn WSW, and they were not flashing. When I zoomed in with 7x35 mm binoculars, there were 3 distinct crafts, they seemed almost like cubes with backlighting that was more prominent on the corners of the craft highlighting the cube shape.

The entire time there was an apparent roar, but it was deeper in tone than typical fighter jets or even commercial airliners. It seemed to be a very large type of engine, or something operating at very high power. Just as I ran in to post this, the were starting to near the Western Horizon, and the sound was at its loudest.

best # always happens at night just so you need a very good camera just to have any high quility footage, which most dont have, EFFECTIVE

While I agree, most video jobs of UFO's are effectively useless. One thing that isn't is multiple eye witnesses in multiple jurisdictions.

There have only been a few cases that get this and they are always the most intriguing.

If the OP does have a camera, not matter the quality, it will be interesting to see if other have footage too of the same event.

I know, but no film. I'm hoping someone else in the flight path can grab them. I'd suspect they travelled just west of Miami, Oklahoma travelling WSW, and they should be apparent to anyone skywatching. I know we have people in Oklahoma City, they should be visible there soon enough!

How far away was this from you and was it happening over a populated area?

Grr getting kind of tired of all these night time fliers! Can't we get one of them to just mess up and fly in the day time instead or at least in highly populated area say New York

I was sitting out too, I cried because the energy and the beauty of the afternoon over whelmed me... I am going back out...

Oh, and I did see and hear a loud large silver jet over head going in your direction...

This helped me visualize, may help others. (I'm not familiar with the area)

It is visible and audible, a total of 6 craft, 3 looked conventional, but 2 were not similar to anything I've ever seen, and the noise sounded similar to an exiting F117A at an airshow. Deeper than departing airliners or fighter jets. It was an extremely low and powerful rumble, more apparent as they got past me and moved on. The 6th craft was only briefly involved, it seemed to be intercepting the others, and then it exited very quickly to the East.

Total time of they were in my sight was probably 3 minutes from spotting them just east of due north, until they went out of sight almost due west of my location. Due west of my location is Galena, Kansas. Southwest of me is Miami Oklahoma.

West of me is Eastern Kansas and Northeastern Oklahoma. On the map you linked it would be the Prior, Tulsa area. The crafts would be following the SW route along I-44 that passes out of Missouri toward Tulsa, OK.

Yes, it is populated, but it is highly rural, so it is just sparse population. These crafts were at considerable elevation, or at least they appeared to be. Judging by other things I could spot in the binoculars, and the change in size from naked eye to zoom in the binocular, they were probably lower than the 30,000 feet airliners, but still pretty distant from me.

Just guessing from what I know of other aircraft that fly over, I would say there were 20-30 miles west of me when they went out of sight. That would put them just across the Kansas/Oklahoma border at that time, but probably well into Oklahoma by now.

There were not moving at extreme speeds, just typical speeds a conventional aircraft.

Lit boxes sounds like Chinese lanterns, but not if the jets are keeping pace.
I don't get why ufo's would make such a show at night... Why not just hire a convertible and go down Route 66 like everyone else does.

My Mom is a smoker, and she claims to see stuff just about every night, but I typically blow it off like I did with her first sighting tonight. That first one was probably a satellite or maybe conventional jet catching a glare from the sun. I am usually very quick at finding plausible explanations, but the two things I saw through the binoculars are unfamiliar to me, and I have lived on air force bases, and I have my private pilot license. I'm familiar with most regular aircraft.

These really looked like large cubes with internal lighting that seemed to concentrate at the corners.

My Dad, Mom, and Wife all saw the same things. It was a very rare sighting.

My Mom is wondering if it could be AF1 with decoys? I think AF1 uses typical FAA lights, but I'm not sure if they have any special protocols.

The two jets with the flashing FAA lights had typical wingtip strobes and red marker lights from my perspective. They were moving right to left from my perspective. The jets were flanking them just of their right rear or maybe 5 o'clock position of the last two cubes. The front cube didn't have an escort, but that may have been the escort that bugged out for some reason.

I must say I really like how much description you have put in this and the time to despite it being what seems to be a rather quick event. Usually it's just a statement as to where they are and what they see; but you sir have given quite a bit of information on locale, the planes themselves and which way they are heading. Kudos!

You mention the lights, the UFO's I have witnessed up close had distinctly different lighting, not man made like what you see on air craft. Can you recall their colors?

Anyone in OK out there yet?

West/North West of OKC here. I'll grab my binoculars and go outside for a bit....will report back if I see anything.
138th Fighter WIng (F-16s) is based in Tulsa....wonder if they got anyone up with this.

(Not like the OKC Thunder are going to win tonight)

10:40pm local.....

Thinking about how they moved through my perspective, they may have made a slow circle, and they could be over mid-Arkansas instead of Oklahoma. If my perspective was somewhere near the center point of a circle, the would have gone from my 2 o'clock to my 9 o'clock. Maybe they circled on around into Arkansas.

My Mom has a better eye for detail than me, but she had trouble focusing the binoculars. She saw them as 3 distinct lights instead of the light concentrating at corners of a cube like I saw. I don't think they were cigar shaped, but according to her account they could have been.

All 3 were identical, and the lights were solid, and they were a dull white, almost yellowy light. No strobes, no red or green marker lights, and definitely not landing lights.
