Location: Bath, ME
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
Orange lights that changed to bright white

I live in Bath Maine and have seen several objects I cannot explain. BNAS (Brunswick Naval Air Base) Is near by so I know these planes, also Portland Jet port commercial planes are easily identified.

One night while working for a engineering outfit in Poland springs I thought I was seeing a satellite passing overhead. I used my field glasses to look at it and it appeared star like. It moved very slowly. But to my amazement it made a U turn and started back toward the direction it came from. I have no idea what it could have been. It traveled what to me seemed miles before turning back.

On another occasions, and this really frightened me, I was going to work at the shipyard where I work. It was about 9:30 at night. I looked to my left and sitting up in the sky was an object with orange light in the outline of a commercial jet. But this was way to large to be a jet and it was not moving. It just sat there what I believed to be right over the river. I drove on a block before looking back up. The orange lights were replaced by 3 large white lights in the shape of a triangle. Very huge. I set my eyes back on the road and suddenly there was this bright light that seemed to me like someone setting off a flash on a camera. It lit up the trees and the rooftops, and when I looked back the object was gone. This object to me later as I went over it’s size had to be as big as a football field, or damn near as big.
