Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 MIN
Large, red triangle over Delaware County.

As I was driving to work this morning I happened to look over my left shoulder across an empty field and saw a large red triangle, approximately two miles northeast of my location.

I had made a left from Wilson Rd. onto Berkshire Rd. and happened to glance out the drivers side window. The triangular shape was distinct. The edges of the object were illuminated by a red band of individual lights. The lights did not flash. The object appeared to be either hovering or making a slow movement to the southwest in my direction. It was probably 15 degrees above the horizon.

I considered stopping for a better look, or making a call to the sheriff or a radio station, but I did not have time.

As I was driving to work on Interstate 71, I tried to locate the object, but I could not see it.

The weird thing was that when I pulled into the parking lot at work (in the Polaris area of Columbus) at about 5:00 AM, I again saw the same triangle in the eastern sky, this time at a much higher elevation, probably 45 degrees above the horizon. It was probably four miles to the east. After looking at it for a few seconds, it seemed to fade away into the night sky.

When I got into my car at 4:40 AM, I saw nothing unusual. But the distance at which I saw it would have put it very near my house.

I am hoping that there are other eyewitnesses.
