Large, low, slow moving black triangular object with mulitple lights

Between 8 and 9 pm on March 13, 2009, I along with the other witness spotted a triangular shaped craft hovering over a cemetery in Sanford Florida. We were traveling west bound on a two-lane road, roughly 40 miles per hour. We looked out of the drivers side window and noticed the object. It had multiple lights, probably around 5 or 6. The majority of the lights were white but there was also one or two red ones located somewhere from the middle to the rear of the object. At first we thought it was a plane, especially since there is a small airport located nearby, but it appeared to be stationary. It was also extremely low but we were unable to hear any noise as we passed. I couldn’t say exactly how far off the ground it was, but the height was equivalent to an extremely tall oak tree.

Now as we were both passing, we both started to comment on the object at the same time. We both noticed how low it was and how it appeared to be hovering or moving at an extremely slow speed. First instinct was that it was just a plane on it’s way to the airport, but the speed, height, and sound just didn’t add up to the normal sightings of planes in that area. Then the thought was that it was possibly some kind of stationary tower, such as a cell phone. So once we passed the object, we decided to do a u-turn and go back and get a second look. We had trouble finding a good place to do this and finally just slammed the breaks on and turned into the other lane. By the time we got back to the spot where it was located, the object was gone.

In hind sight, I wish we had just slammed the breaks on the moment we saw it. There were no cars directly behind us and I don’t recall any other cars passing in the other lane at that same moment. I’m also surprised at how I felt. There was no uneasiness or frightened feeling. Just a feeling of confusion. The area in which it was spotted is also heavily populated. In the same direction as the object was traveling, there is an apartment complex and a large high school, which are both located on the other side of the cemetery. I would be extremely surprised if no one else saw it.
