Location: Morristown, NJ
Shape: Triangle
Duration:About 20 seconds
A triangular object with a light on each corner flies across the highway in a straight line while spinning around.

I was in a car going home after hockey practice from Morristown, New Jersey. It was about 10:30 pm, and my mom was driving the car, my sister was in the back asleep. We were on the highway, and there were plenty of airplanes flying around. The sky was cloudy so instead of it being a dark blue/black color, it was sort of light purple and I could easily see the shapes of all of the airplanes against the night sky.

hen I saw something flying that didn’t look like an airplane at all. It was triangular shaped and had an off-white light on each corner. It was flying very close to the ground and didn’t produce any noise. We drove almost directly under it. What struck me as most interesting was that it was flying in a straight line, at a constant medium speed, but was spinning around at the same time. At first all I saw were three lights spinning around, but as it got closer I saw that it was a triangle. It wasn’t large at all, and it looked to be about the size of a small commercial airplane, or even a jet. One of the lights on it was blinking as well. It was flying across the highway when I saw it, and I stared at it until it disappeared behind the trees on the sides of the highway. However, it didn’t look like it landed. I only saw one. I saw many other airplanes after that, including commercial airplanes, jets, and small individually owned ones, but none of them had the same shape, light color, or light blinking pattern as the triangular flying object did.

I have always been interested in UFO's and have believed in aliens for quite a while, and this definitely looked like something that I've seen on UFO shows. In the past I thought that I'd seen UFO's before, but it took me only a few seconds to realize that it was an airplane. This aircraft however showed no signs of being one.
