Location: Dayton, OH
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Elongated triangular shaped craft seen over east Dayton, flying south before splitting into 2 seperate lights.

So right around 12:45 tonight I was driving south on I-75 in downtown Dayton, OH just north of the I-35 changeover when I saw something in the sky over Dayton. I was looking out my driverside window towards the city, which would have been directly east of the city. It was an elongated triangular shaped object, seemingly delta shaped, which was either glowing or reflecting a bright yellowish white light. At first glance I thought I was seeing moonlight through a break in distant clouds but quickly realized that the body of light was moving.

It was traveling southbound with me and without immediately considering the details I just assumed it was a particularly visible conventional aircraft, but it's odd shape kept my attention. With only my own perspective to judge from I couldn't accurately determine the objects distance from me and therefore couldn't figure its speed or altitude but after watching it for a couple minutes I realized that it was either much too large and traveling much too fast to be anything conventional or it was flying much too low over the city. Within a few minutes I was taking the 35 East exit and at this point the shape was south east of the city.

Around this point it split into two lights, one was directly above the other. The bottom of the two lights seemed to have a slight red hue and the top was a pale white. About two miles onto I-35 the lights were directly south of me and as I drove east the two gradually disappeared into the south. By the time I reached Keowee St. they were no longer visible.
