Shape: Triangle
Duration:3-4 minutes
triangle shaped "thing" with intense white lights and a "haze" around the outside of it flew over my home and there was no sound comin

On 7/17/06 at approx 11:00pm I was sitting on my patio and looking at the night sky when over my right shoulder I caught sight of a very bright light....I thought that it might have been a star but the "light" was moving from the northwest to the southeast at a very slow speed.....as it approached me I could barely make out the shape of a triangle or arrowhead shaped "thing"....as it continued past me I could see what appeared to be very intense bright white lights on the underside of it.....and I am not real sure but possibly red lights at the corners of it.......it was a clear night and there appeared to be a "haze" of some sort around the edges of the "thing".....it just looked like aan arrowhead with lights moving across the night sky.....there was no sound whatsoever....as I live in the country there also was no other ground lights around me.....I watched it til it disappeared from view.....my home is only 5-6 miles north of Scott Air Force base.....I have no idea what this was......I've been a police officer for 35 years and it is new to me....
