Location: Farquay Varina, NC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:20 minutes
On an otherwise cloudless and starry night, my brother and I noticed a dense low-lying cloud over their new development. Coming through the cloud at regular quick bursts, were bright lights in the shape of a stationary isocelese triangle. It's hard to judge the size due to the cloud, but it was around 40 ft? On the hypotenuse. There was no noise, and no breeze that night. My brother woke his wife up to see it. It spooked her, so they went back inside. I stayed outside for 20 minutes watching the lights, until the cloud dissipated. It did not drift so much as dissipate. I could still see faint lights as the cloud moved away, with the lights seeming to be on their side. The neighborhood was asleep, there were no streetlights, no cellphone towers around, nothing. I don't know what it was, but have ruled out streetlights,cellphone towers, and helipcopters, harriers etc as these make noise. I wish that I had had a camera, or that I'd thought to call the police to see if anyone else had seen it.
