Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
Near 10:30pm, silent, triangular UFO, deep orange lights, white beam, flies slow about 10,000 ft; disappeared by vertical ascent.

(July 3, 2012 in Irvine, CA) My husband and I were walking the dogs around 10:30pm, when I looked up at the stars, and noticed a triangular object high in the sky. It was gliding slowly, in a straight line, making no sound – flying in from the coast. The bottom of the object had three large deep orange lights, spaced close together and non-blinking. In the center of these lights was a wide beam of bright blue-white light (shaped like an inverted ice-cream cone), pointing toward ground. After the radiant object turned off the cone-shaped beam, it continued to fly in the same straight line. Then it stopped and hovered overhead a few seconds before ascending vertically into space. My husband is a private pilot and estimates the object flew near 10,000 ft. He is confident it was not a helicopter with a searchlight.
