Location: Sarasota, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Two craft with seven orange lights on each, and a vague, dark triangular shape that housed the lights.

I was out riding my bicycle when i noticed an odd orange glowing orb over a large span of forest to the East, resting just above the treeline. The light has never been there before in any of my previous night time bike rides, so my attention was captured. Then a tree got in the way and I couldn't seem to find the light again, I even doubled back to where I had last been able to see it, but it was gone. I then looked to the other side of the road.

It was here that I saw the first of the two crafts. It was travelling low and to the South at a very slow speed. It gave off a very low humming noise almost like a ver muted engigine, but unlike any engine I've ever heard, especially at such a low altitude. There were seven orange lights placed at distinct locations on the craft. Five were in a row in the central region of the craft and the other two were placed so the seven lights looked like a cross with the short horizontal line at an angle. The lights are represnted by the "o".

-o- -o--o--o------o--o- -o- The triangular shape seemed to mirror the shape of the lights, however that is hard to illustrate for you as i did for the lights... The craft moved from the right to left as you view the illustration.

Then I lost sight of the craft for four to five seconds as I made a ninety degree turn onto another street. In this very short stretch of time, the craft had gone from flying parallel with me towards the south, to flying parallel with me to the west. Then I came to an area with ponds on both sides of the road, permitting a large area of sight on all sides of me. As I glanced to the left to see if there were any more of these ships, I saw another further away but also flying parallel with my cycling to the west. It looked exactly the same, only the two lights out of line were in the opposite position and it had a red light (illustrated by "X") as well. Looking like this: -o- -o--o--X---o--o--o- -o- This craft flew from left to right, as you view the diagram. None of the lights flashed or fluttered at any point during the experience. Then the two ships sped up slightly and disappeared over the horrizon.
