Symmetric geometric shape, black with blinking long red lights.

My childhood friend and I were playing a game of catch with a baseball in our neighborhood. The ball went over our heads and up the street. We both ran after it to see who could get it first. We got to the ball at the same time. Neither one of us touched the ball, we were both distracted by what we saw ahead of us in the sky.

We were looking south and there was a Catholic church across the road from our neighborhood. What we saw looked like it was perched on top of the tall pointed steeple. I quickly realized that what I was seeing was actually miles away from us, and it had to be very large. It was a very unique geometric shape, unlike anything else I have ever seen. It was taller than it was wide. It was very symmetric in shape. It looked like a tall triangle was sitting on a mirror and the top point had been cut off about 3/4 of the way up, so it had a flat top and bottom. It also looked like two more shorter stubbed triangles had been placed on either side of the object directly in the middle tapering out. It appeared that the object was black and it had what looked like red flourescent light bulbs on it that followed the same pattern as the outer edges of the shape. The lights were blinking on and off in a random but slow pattern. The sky in the background was pure blue without a cloud in the sky, so the object was very distinct in the sky. It seemed to hover in place for about thirty seconds and then started to slowly rise and move away. Then it suddenly bolted faster than my eyes could keep up, I just remember knowing that it had traveled faster than anything on this planet could ever go, except maybe a bullet.

My friend and I just stood there with our mouths hanging open in awe at what we had just seen. We looked at each other for a few seconds without saying anything and then I said "Did you just see that?". He said yes. I told him not to say anything to me about what he saw, just to go home and write it all down and draw the object. I then told him that we would compare our notes the next morning when we were on the bus for school. Just for the record, I only new to do all of this because the TV show 'Project Blue Book' was a series on TV at the time and I had seen the Air Force investigators on the show tell people to do that, so they could buid a more credible case. Anyway, we both went home and wrote and drew what we had seen. I told my parents about it, but of course they were not going to believe a little boy telling such wild tales. The next day my friend and I compared our notes and drawings and they were identical. I have never forgotten that event nor have I ever seen any other drawings or pictures that looked like the object we saw. I have always wondered if anyone else saw that object that night. I also want it to be known that I am not sure of the exact date that this took place, but I believe that I am fairly close to it. If anyone out there saw this, all those years ago, please post your sighting so I will know that my friend and I were not the only two that saw this amazing sight.
