Location: Chelsea, AL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 minutes
Small triangular object flying in large circles above our area with lights in each corner making a very strange resonating sound.

I awoke to the sound of a strange noise that sounded like a cross between a slow flying jet and a propeller driven airplane, but it was at a pitch that seemed to resonate and make a very slight vibrating sound. The second time I heard it, I got out of bed and walked outside. I looked up and saw a triangular craft with lights on each corner that looked like it was at least 400 - 500 feet up and flying at a very slow speed which looked to me to be around 60 - 70 mph. The sound it was making was so weird I can't really describe it like I heard it.

It was flying in a circle with a circumference of about 3 miles and did this for at least 20 minutes. It would fly directly over my house. I even got my video camera out and shot some video, but I don't think it will turn out since it was very dark and my camera couldn't focus on anything. At one point, there was even a different small 2 or 4 seater airplane that flew under this object at a normal speed and about 300 or so feet below the object.

It then flew in a few oblong circles until it then started to fly in a straight line away from my house at the same speed.
