|Silent Triangle Lights over Greers Ferry Lake
At close to sunset, as I was walking in my backyard, I noticed just above the horizon, to my west, what appeared to be an large aircraft flying towards me. Not unusual, as that the National Guard flew C130s in the area, but NOT on a Wednesday in the Spring. The craft then turned to the north and it was then I noted the lights in a odd pattern: a small triangle of red ligts (small point at the nose of the craft), with a slightly larger triangle of blue-green lights (small end attached to the nose setion) as the fuselage. Due to the distance from me, I cannot give a accurate size, though I would guesstimate it to be slightly bigger than a military cargo plane. As it was turning north sharply, it's speed was faster than most planes I have witnessed, but unlike other high speed turns, it did this without any engine noise. After moving slightly north, it turned back to the west, again silently, and was gone. What makes the sighting even more interesting ws that f! or two to three hours afterwards, pairs of military jets were seen and heard patroling the area. Not protocol for a Wednesday night, I assure you. I am in the military, and I have flown most of my life, and to this day,I have never seen or not-heard an aircraft like the one I witnessed that night.
