Reported: 2/15/2007 7:35:20 PM 19:35
Posted: 2/24/2007
Location: Salem, MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 min
Daytime white triangle shaped object in the sky.

Arriving home, 5:05 pm, my wife (passenger) drew my attention to an object to our northeast. Object was stationary. Appeared the size of a commercial airliner at 25 to 30 thousand feet.

I entered home, retrieved binoculars, stepped back outside; object had begun to move north. Through binoculars, object appeared to be triangle shape and white in color. Object took about one minute to fade from view.

Object did not have wings, lights, vapor trail, or sound. Temperature was about 15 degrees. Clear sky with setting western sun shining on the object.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with the witnesses via telephone, and both sounded to be quite serious-minded people. The fact that the object was stationary, when first observed, is interesting, and the fact that it disappeared over the horizon so rapidly is equally curious, we believe. PD))
