|I was standing outside when I saw a light in the distance. It was very far away, headed in a NE direction. It was moving very slowly. At first I thought it was a plane, but when it got closer I wasn't sure. I got my binoculars and looked, but it didn't look like a plane. After about a minute of watching it with the binoculars, it suddenly disappeared. I quickly put down the binoculars and saw that it had quickly picked up speed and was now almost out of view.
The craft was a flying triangle. It had seven lights on it that I could see. It was flying at about normal altitude for a plane. The lights were a light blue color. When the craft made its rapid speed increase, the lights became red. There was only the one object and all it did was fly in a straight line. When I first saw it, it was moving very slowly. About half a minute after it had passed over my house, its speed increased so much that it was beyond the horizon in a few seconds.
