Very dimly lit triangular-shaped object over Brookston, Indiana

At about 9:25 P.M. eastern time Monday, April 1, 2013, I was outside letting my dogs out. It was a very clear night and cold. I was waiting on them to do their business and looking at the many stars and constellations. I suddenly saw something to the west and at about a 60-70 degree angle up from the horizon. It was a triangular shaped object moving in a straight line from slightly southwest to slightly northeast, but mostly south to north.

It was difficult to see due to the dark coloring – slightly lighter than the night sky and dark brown/gray coloring. There were extremely dim “lights” on the bottom – three at each corner – each grouping in a triangle shape – all a rusty red-orange color –very dim. No blinking lights at all. No sound before, during, or after. It moved at a constant speed and fairly quickly. I saw it for probably 10 seconds as I could only visualize it between two groupings of trees; it was not bright enough to see when it moved farther northeast behind the second group of trees.

I don’t know how big it was or how far away it was – I am not good at judging this. It appeared to me to be the size of 3-4 full moons (when it is directly overhead, not the huge moon size when it’s near the horizon). I have seen a stealth plane fly directly overhead once before and this was nothing similar to it at all. I have never seen anything like this before, but I hope to see this again someday. Truly awesome!
