Occurred : 12/15/1998 21:00 (Entered as : 12/15/98 21:00)
Reported: 3/16/1999 16:41

Location: Bethlehem, PA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4 minutes
Dark equilateral triangle outlined by lights, no noise, east to west movement, very slow speed.

I was on my second-story deck looking east when I saw a light pattern that did not make sense. It looked like an equilateral triangle. The middle of the triangle had no lights and was dark because the time was about 9 o'clock at night (or thereabouts). It was mid-December of 1998, approximately. There was no noise whatsoever as it passed over my home at an extremely low rate of speed while heading directly west. The Lehigh Valley International Airport is nearby so I am aware of the various shapes of aircraft lights at night and this object did not fit the light patterns that are known to me. Also, airplanes make noise. This thing did not make any sound at all. I just told a few friends, some of whom said they had heard similar stories from others.
