Location: South Lyon, MI
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 Seconds
Big Iso-triangular craft 3 bright white lights tight up front, flashing center red, several bright whites in a row in back, slight hum

First sighting [One Witness] smaller looking craft with solid red light in the rear of craft with solid white lights on either corner. Craft was close enough to be with in ear shot (flying at normally observed height range) but no sound (or very quiet for this matter) was emitted. A small private plane off in the distance confirmed that it (although much further away) displayed the traditional red, green and white light configuration. Moments later a much larger triangular craft at a higher altitude than previous craft started to come from the SW to NE direction appeared in sight. Upon spotting this brightly lit craft, I ran outside, my father also witnessing the very little sound, and clear triangular shape. The craft appeared to be rather large, with a flashing center red light and 3 bright white lights near the front and several bright white lights near the rear in a horizontal line. The layout was as isosceles wedge. I live very, very close to the Oaklan! d/Southwest Airport and have for most of my life and have seen all sorts of aircraft and what the look and sound like and this I assure you is no 'normal' craft.

Thank you for reading.

[Location South Lyon Michigan, Deer Creek Drive. Craft moving from West to East, at altitudes not suggesting any sort of landing in nearby airfield, although heading over it. I unfortunately did not take a picture but have a simple sketch to verify what I and my father saw at that moment after.]
