Location: Chattanooga, TN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
Black triangle traveling at low altitude and hovering.

My wife and I were traveling down highway 58 after dinner. All of a sudden, a craft appeared in sight from the right side of the road. It was in slow descent. It did not appear to be a conventional aircraft in terms of it flight characteristics.

As we approached closer it wad noted to triangular in shape. There were three lights on each point of the triangle that were white in color. The center of the craft had a red light that flashed occasionally but without purpose. I could see the surface of the craft as well and it appeared dark and possibly reflective. The craft as it descended crossed the road and I made a uturn in my car to try to get a picture. It was then noted to be hovering at treetop level (for about 10 seconds ) and was silent. I estimate the craft to be around the size of 3 sedan sized cars.

After I had made my uturn and parked, the craft then started moving again and crossed the highway once more and all of a sudden disappeared. It did not descend or ascend, it just went out of sight completely.

When I first saw the craft I thought it was plane due to a blinking light in the center, then noted it could be a helicopter as the light pattern didn't look typical. Then noted it couldn't be a helicopter due to the fact it was traveling so smoothly.
