Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Boomerang-shaped UFO sighted over Philadelphia at dusk

First I noticed one bright solid amber light approaching from New Jersey (I'd seen it before). Then, as it got closer, I saw three triangular lights moving synchronously.

Then, after it crossed the Delaware River, I saw CLEARLY six white lights(three on each segment of the wing) attached to the bottom of a V shaped craft, moving very slowly, at almost rooftop level, only one block from my top floor apartment's location.

It made no sound; there was no electrical interference of any kind, the height of the object was small (@10 feet); defenitely not capable of carrying a crew; I got the impression it was a reconnaissance probe taking video of the city that passed underneath it.

Unfortunately I didn't have my Sony Handycam in-hand or I'd have the video to prove this sighting to you.

Also, you should know that this came one month after I observed a parabolic-shaped craft on April 13, 2008, and was reported to MUFON later.
