Reported: 7/3/2007 9:09:18 PM 21:09
Posted: 8/7/2007
Location: Southside, AL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4-6 minutes
At approximately 9:30 PM (21:30) I was on my deck smoking a cigarette and as I do nightly, looked into the sky to see the clarity of the stars, or in this case lack of. I have owned this family property for over 40+years, and to the Northwest sky, noticed a triangular cluster of lights hovering over the tree tops in the distance. Firstly, I thought this to be stars, however they were too low to the treetops. The lights were distinctively triangulated with possibly the bottom row containing lights of color or motion between the two corners of the triangle (pyramid) shape. These lights were observed for 4-6 minutes. I told my 17 year-old daughter to come out on the deck and see. She observed, saying "I was freaking her out with this sighting." She went inside with me and when I returned the lights were gone. There are no towers or residents within this area that are lighted at this elevation. Furthermore, the sky seemed to become increasingly clearer after this sighting exited.
