Reported: 9/3/2011 12:52:25 AM 00:52
Posted: 10/10/2011
Location: Exeter, NH
Shape: Triangle
Duration:20-30 seconds
Large triangle w/ large white circular light near each edge and a smaller circular red light in center and a constant low rumble sound

I was smoking a cigarette and saw a large triangle in the sky flying north to south. It was relatively low in the sky considering the size of the craft. It had a large circular white light near the each tip (so 3 in total) and had a medium to small sized red light in the center. If I had to guess its size I'd say it was at least 150 to 200 feet across. It made a sound like thunder, no where near as loud as thunder and it was a constant rumble but thunder is the closest sound I can compare it to. It absolutely was NOT a jet engine nor a propeller engine. My father was in the Air Force, I was born on an air force base and have been to more air shows then I can count. I am also an avid night fisherman however I have never seen anything like this. It was in view for only 20 to 30 seconds because of the tree lines on each side of me. Its speed was slower then I would have thought something that big should have been going without being much louder, at max it was g! oing 100 to 200 mph. It moved in a perfect straight line and never changed elevation.
