Location: Edwardsville, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:45SECONDS
I SEEN LIGHTS IN THE SKY IN A TRIANGLE SHAPED PATERN THE OBJECT HOVERED LESS THAN 1 MINUTE OVER THE EAST SIDE OF EDWARDSVILLE GOING TOWARDS TROY, IL

ON MY WAY TO PICK UP MY CHILDREN FROM THE SITTERS, I WAS HEADING EAST ON SCHWARTZ RD. IN EDWARDSVILLE, IL 62025 WHEN I GOT TO THE CORNER OF SCHWARTZ RD. AND BROWN ST. I SAW ONE LARGE LIGHT HOVERING OVER SOME TREES, BUT WHEN I GOT TO THE NEXT CORNER WICH IS SPRINGER ST., I GOT A MUCH CLEARER VIEW, THE LARGE LIGHT I SAW WAS ONE OF THREE. THE LARGE LIGHT WAS THE TOP OF THE TRIANGLE, UNDERNEATH THAT WAS TWO SMALLER LIGHTS. THE TOP LIGHT WAS VERY BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT, THE OTHER TWO LIGHTS WERE LIGHT GREEN , BUT JUST AS BRIGHT AS THE TOP LIGHT. THIS DISPLAY OF LIGHTS LASTED ABOUT 45 SECONDS. I HAD DRIVEN ABOUT 2 BLOCKS EAST ON SCHWARTZ RD. THE PATTERN OF LIGHTS APPEARED CLOSE AT FIRST BECAUSE IT SEEMED TO HOVER OVER SOME TREES BUT WHEN I GOT TO THE NEXT CORNER I COULD TELL THE LIGHTS WERE AT A GREAT DISTANCE, THE BRIGHTNESS MADE IT LOOK CLOSER THAN WHAT IT WAS. I WAS ALONE IN MY CAR WHEN I OBSERVED THIS.
