Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Triangle-shaped object the size of a go-kart with blue/white lights.

My wife and I were driving back from her dad's office along Gaines School just after midnight when she saw some slow-moving lights a few blocks away. I figured it was an airplane or something, but as we got closer it stopped moving entirely. So when we got alongside it, I pulled into the parking lot where K-Mart used to be.

As we got closer, it seemed no bigger than a go-kart, with 3 bright blue-white lights forming a triangle. I pulled underneath it, and it was up, maybe 150 ft. in the air, but the instant we got under it, the object started to move north. At this point, we assumed it must be some kind of remote-controlled aircraft (with lights?) and looked for someone operating it as we drove. We saw no one. It began to move faster and I continued through the long strip mall drive following behind it. We lost sight of it when it went over the Jittery Joe's, but by the time I got on the other side, it was completely gone.
