Posted: 10/30/2006
Location: Ocracoke Island, NC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3-5 seconds
Extremely fast,low flying,perfect black triangle,lighted at corners and eeriliy silent.

i awoke very early on a monday morning, (the date i give is an estimate). I could not sleep so i walked outside and sat down on the front stoop.I was looking up at the stars in awe of how crystal clear the sky was.Suddenly i saw a pattern of lights moving toward me with incredable speed,the lights were bluish almost the same color as the stars and appeared to be moving around one another.It happened so fast i did not even have time to think about what i was seeing.The pattern of lights came directly over me quite low and as they passed i saw a dark perfect triangle with one bluish white light on each corner.My mouth dropped involuntarily I thought about calling someone from inside the house but i was so stunned i could not speak.The triangle was the fastest moving object i have ever seen(besides a shooting star)and completely silent,no rumble,no breeze.I tried to make sense of what i had seen.I blew it off as a low flying stealth bomber.I told myself that the lights had only appeared to be moving around one another because it had approached my location on its side and flattened out as it passed over.This explanation satisfied me until i described it to my father in the morning.He assured me that a stealth flying that low would have made some sort of sound.Also i do not believe that stealths or even concords can move at that rate.Also the shape and configuration does not match.Even though the event lasted barely 3 or 4 breaths i will never get the image out of my mind.I am happy to find a place to talk about this in a way that is taken seriously.I have sent a second report in of a diffrent nature that happened a bit later.I hope that these reports will help to lend some validity to others that may be similar in nature.I have lived on the outer banks of north carolina for sometime and there are many here who have seen these things in the night sky but very few talk about it.I stopped telling these stories in the face of ridicule and disbelief thank you for providing me a place to lay them to rest..
