Location: Phoenix, AZ
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 Minutes
Black triangle, 3 lights at each point, thin in shape, hanging point down, turned clockwise, lights stretched and sped away

I was driving south on 19th Avenue, approaching Pinnacle Peak Road. Now, this is right near the Deer Valley Airport, but what I saw was not an airplane. I saw a triangular shaped craft that was inky, inky, jet black with 3 lights. It was very ink-black against the dark sky and one could differentiate the fact that it was a much darker black than the night sky. It was VERY big and was hanging like a thin black mirror in the sky, point down. This was the second UFO I've seen in my lifetime, and this one made me feel very afraid. I think because it was so large and so black. Next, the triangle began to rotate, with the point of the triangle going up and the other points turning in a clockwise motion. What was so strange is the lights of the triangle then began to stretch and the inky blackness of it dissipated and the 3 lights shot off quickly in separate directions. This was just northwest of the Deer Valley Airport.
