Location: LaGrange, OH
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Triangle craft with lights in each corner and a large light in the center seen up close.

It was roughly 5:30 am December 20th 2012 and my boyfriend and I stepped outside to sneak a cigarette. I noticed it first and asked, "What is THAT?" It looked like a star at first but it was far too large and bright to be a star. It started in the NW part of the sky. The bright white light then turned red and streaked quickly towards us leaving a red trail in the behind it. As decreased speed the red light faded. Then it was very close and you could see it clearly. The craft was an equilateral triangle with a large white light in the center and beige/orange lights in each corner. There was a blue light on top. It was only maybe 30-50 feet corner to corner. It traveled east slowly and continuously toward, and then over us.

The sight was so fantastic and we thought no one would believe what we were seeing. So we each pulled out our phones and tried to take a picture. His phone shut itself off when he opened the camera application, and then mine froze up when I unlocked the screen then shut itself off shortly after. That only added to the mystery of the experience.

The craft was only maybe 500 ft away when it was directly above us. We never heard a sound the entire time we saw it. The craft flew over the house so we ran around following it so we wouldn't lose sight of the most amazing thing we've ever seen. Finally it disappeared behind the trees across the street leaving us flabbergasted.
