Glowing orange triangular object with orbs in each corner travelling south to north

In the early morning hours of Tuesday, August 14, 2007 at approximately 12:45 a.m. my husband, a friend of ours & I were in our backyard watching for meteors. The friend & I were sitting facing east to northeast & I witnessed a large triangular shaped object with three orbs located in each of the corners silently fly across the sky, traveling in a south to north direction. The object appeared to have a soft orange glow about its perimeter as well as around the orbs.

The event only took about 5-8 seconds to occur & what we found most stunning was the fact that it was absolutely silent as it traveled. We live somewhat near the airport & hear a lot of air traffic. This object however was perfectly silent & given the late hour, there wasn’t a lot of ambient noise in the neighborhood.

In the time it took the two of us who witnessed the event to simultaneously say, “what was that!?!?” the object disappeared behind a large tree in our yard & was gone. Needless to say, it rattled both of us & we proceeded to describe it to my husband. Our descriptions were identical. We then went inside the house where we both independently drew what we saw. The pictures are eerily similar (drawings submitted separately).

We hope that, due to the meteor shower activity over the past few days, other people may have been looking into the sky that evening & can substantiate what we saw.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and she seemed to us to be exceptionally credible. We have invited the other witness to submit a report, as well. PD))
